Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery at Medical City Dallas Hospital
Urologic surgery refers to surgery performed on the male and female urinary tract organs and male reproductive organs. Urologic surgery is performed for cancer as well as a range of non-cancerous (benign) urologic conditions. All surgeries carry risk, but traditional open surgery with a large incision has significant drawbacks – pain, trauma, a long recovery and risk of infection.
If you need surgery to treat your urologic condition, you may be a candidate for robotic Surgery — a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure. Using the most advanced technology available today, the da Vinci® Surgical System allows your doctor to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with increased vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery® is used for, among other things, the following urologic procedures:
- Prostate Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Kidney Disorders
- Bladder Cancer
- Urinary Obstruction
One of the best ways to truly understand a da Vinci® Surgery experience is to hear directly from patients, in their own words. At da Vinci Stories, you can browse patient stories, watch video or search for specific stories that may match your own. We hope this information is helpful as you make your decision about which treatment option is right for you.
