Robotic-Assisted Expertise for Minimally Invasive Urologic Procedures

With extensive experience in robotic-assisted surgery, the team of da Vinci Xi™ Surgical System trained urologists at Riverside Health System provide comprehensive care and support for a range of urologic needs. Robotic-assisted surgical capabilities offer enhanced precision, using slender telescope-like instruments and cameras for a highly-detailed 3-dimensional view of the surgical area.

Because of the commitment of the Riverside Health System to advanced technology and improved patient care, robotic-assisted procedures have become the standard of care for many urologic procedures, including:

  • Cyst removal
  • Cystectomy (bladder surgery)
  • Partial and total nephrectomy (kidney surgery)
  • Prostatectomy (prostate surgery)
  • Pyeloplasty surgery for kidney blockage
  • Ureteral implantation

 

Benefits of urology robotic surgery at Riverside

Surgical efficiencies improve when using robotic-assisted surgical techniques, using tiny incisions and providing a more precise motion range. Even the most complex procedures result in fewer complications and improved recovery due to shorter operating times, less pain, lower infection rates, smaller incisions and decreased blood loss. Benefits such as these allow our patients to return to everyday life more quickly.

For any urologic surgery involving very delicate nerves, robotic-assisted surgery's efficiency and success maximize nerve-sparing results, especially for prostate surgery. This ability to protect critical nerves and eliminate stretch injury improves both urinary control and sexual function outcomes.
