Urology Surgery

  • Our urology teams specialize in the following surgical procedures.

    Robotic Surgery
    We offer the da Vinci Si robotic surgery system for complex urological procedures.

    Circumcision
    This surgical procedure removes the skin covering the tip of the penis. It is most commonly performed on newborn boys. Learn more about circumcision.

    Cystourethroscopy
    During this procedure, a flexible tube and viewing device (called a cytoscope) is inserted through the urethra to examine the bladder and urinary tract. The surgeon looks for abnormal tissue, obstructions, tumors, or stones. Samples of the bladder tissue may be removed through the cystoscope for further examination. This procedure is used to diagnose bladder cancer. Learn more about bladder cancer treatment.

    Prostatectomy
    This procedure removes all or part of the prostate gland and some of the tissue surrounding it. The surgery may be necessary to treat prostate cancer. We offer robotic prostatectomy with our da Vinci Si robotic surgery system.

    Transurethral Resection (TUR) for Bladder Tumor
    This procedure can be used to diagnose and treat bladder cancer. The surgeon inserts a cystoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera on it) through the urethra into the bladder. Tissue containing cancer cells can be surgically removed or burned away with an electric current.
