Robotic Urologic Procedures using the da Vinci® Surgical System

At Rose Medical Center in Denver, we offer the most advanced minimally invasive types of kidney and bladder surgeries available. The da Vinci® Robotic Surgery System allows specially trained doctors to operate miniaturized surgical instruments allowing for extremely precise movements. Our robotic surgeons perform several types of urologic procedures, including:

  • Cystectomy (removal of all or part of the bladder)
  • Nephrectomy or partial nephrectomy (removal of all or part of the kidney)
  • Pyeloplasty (for urinary obstruction)
  • Prostatectomy (removal of all or part of the prostate)

Robotic Surgery Advantages

The increased dexterity our surgeons experience through robot-assisted surgery, allows for better navigation around delicate areas of the male reproductive and urinary systems. Robotic surgery has many advantages over traditional or open surgery, including:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Quicker recovery
  • Less scaring
  • Better clinical outcomes, in many cases

Not all patients are candidates for robotic surgery. To find out if you may be a candidate for this revolutionary surgery, talk to your doctor.
