Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery

Prostate Cancer

Laparoscopic Nerve-Sparing Robotic Assisted Radical Prostatectomy - a minimally invasive urologic technique using robotic assisted surgery to remove the prostate in patients affected with prostate cancer

Enlarged Prostate

Transurethral Laser Vaporization of the Prostate - a minimally invasive urologic technique that uses a small flexible tube introduced through the urethra and high energy lasers to remove the obstructing portions of the prostate

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate - a minimally invasive urologic technique that uses a small flexible tube introduced through the urethra to scoop out the obstructing portions of the prostate

Microwave Therapy for the Prostate - a minimally invasive urologic technique done in the clinic that uses microwaves emitted from a catheter placed in the urethra to shrink the prostate gland

Kidney Cancer

Laparoscopic Radical Nephrectomy – a minimally invasive urologic technique that removes the entire kidney)

Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy – a minimally invasive urologic technique that removes small kidney tumors, leaving behind the unaffected portion of the kidney

Laparoscopic Cryoablation of Kidney Tumors – a minimally invasive urologic technique that uses a small needle passed through the skin to freeze small kidney tumors

Kidney Stones

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) – a non-invasive urologic technique that uses external shock waves to break up kidney and ureteral stones

Ureteroscopic Removal of Kidney and Ureteral stones – a minimally invasive urologic technique that uses a small flexible tube advanced through the urethra and bladder to the ureter/kidney to remove kidney stones.

Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) – a minimally invasive urologic technique that uses a very small incision in the back to remove large kidney stones

Kidney Obstruction

Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty – a minimally invasive urologic technique that reconstructs the junction of the ureter and kidney, ureteropelvic junction or UPJ, removing the blockage

Kidney Cysts

Laparoscopic Ablation/Decortication of Kidney Cysts – a minimally invasive urologic technique that removes or drains large kidney cysts

Bladder Cancer

Transurethral resection of Bladder Tumor – a minimally invasive urologic technique that uses a small flexible tube introduced through the urethra to remove bladder tumors. The remaining tissue near the tumor is coagulated to kill nearby tumor cells.

Laparoscopic Robotic Assisted Radical Cystectomy – a minimally invasive urologic technique that uses robotic assisted surgery to remove the entire bladder and nearby affected organs in patients affected with invasive bladder cancer

Testicular Cancer

Laparoscopic Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection – a minimally invasive urologic technique that removes lymph nodes in the abdomen affected with testicular cancer cells

Pelvic Prolapse

Laparoscopic Robotic Assisted Sacrocolpopexy – a minimally invasive urologic technique to correct vaginal vault prolapse

Adrenal Tumors

Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy – a minimally invasive urologic technique to remove the affected adrenal gland
