For men and women with urologic disorders, the decision to have surgery can be difficult. The business of life does not leave much time to recover from a significant surgical procedure. Surgical recovery time can now be shortened due to advances in robotic technology.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery may include:
- Smaller incisions/less scarring
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Shorter recovery time
- Faster return to normal daily activities
As part of the most comprehensive robotic surgery program in the United States, Penn Urology offers the following minimally invasive services:
- Partial nephrectomy
- Pelvic floor reconstruction
- Prostatectomy (removal of the prostate)
- Pyeloplasty (kidney reconstruction)
