Urologic surgery has traditionally been open surgery which requires
the surgeon to make large, open incisions in the abdomen. Open incisions
mean more bleeding, pain, longer hospital stays, and lengthy recovery
time. Exciting advances in computer engineering have enabled doctors to
perform minimally invasive surgical techniques known as laparoscopic
surgery (keyhole surgery), which is performed through small incisions in
the patient’s abdomen.
Additionally, cutting edge advances in robotics combined with laparoscopic technique has resulted in robotic- assisted laparoscopic surgery. The da Vinci Surgical System (by Intuitive Surgical) is one system currently being used for a variety of robotic-assisted, minimally invasive procedures, such as the da Vinci prostatectomy.
Minimally invasive surgery is now used to address a variety of oncological (cancerous) and benign (non-cancerous) urological conditions which affect kidneys, adrenals, ureter, bladder, prostate and lymph nodes.
