Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery

Unlike traditional open surgery, in which the physician makes a long incision to access the anatomy, minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions, resulting in faster recovery and less pain for the patient.

Many urologic surgeries are performed laparoscopically, in which a small telescope is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision. The inserts tiny surgical instruments through other small abdominal incisions to repair the problem.

Urologic Surgeries

Kidney Stones

If a kidney stone won't pass, surgery may be needed.

  • Removal of kidney stones (Ureteroscopy)

Kidney and Prostate Cancer

  • Removal of the kidney (Laparoscopic Nephrectomy); laparoscopy results in a smaller scar (about 3”) than traditional surgery, which requires a 10-20” scar and sometimes the removal of a rib.
  • Removal of the prostate gland (Robotic Prostatectomy)
