Urologic Surgery

Both men and women can suffer from problems of the kidney, bladder, ureter, urethra, and urinary tract. The division of Urology at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center offers broad experience and knowledge to diagnose and treat illnesses from kidney stone disease to urologic cancer. Penn surgeons have developed innovative techniques for bladder preservation as well as minimally invasive ways to treat prostate cancer and kidney cancer, offering patients much less invasive procedures as an alternative to the traditional surgical option.

It is well known and documented in the medical literature that the more on performs an operation, the better the results achieved. Penn surgeons lead the region in volumes of surgical cases in a number of areas. In fact, the chief of the division of Urology at Penn Presbyterian, David I. Lee, MD, is one of the world's foremost practitioners of robotic prostatectomy. He helped pioneer the use of robotic prostatectomy and teaches the technique to urologists across the country.
