Urologic Surgery

robotic surgery

Currently, nearly all urological cancer surgery and reconstructive surgery can be performed using robotic surgery. Robotic surgery is a specialized form of laparoscopic, minimally invasive surgery. This advanced technology allows our surgeons to perform complex operations through just a few small incisions. The system we use features magnified, 3D high-definition visualization capabilities and tiny, wristed instruments that bend and rotate with greater precision and dexterity than the human hand.

As a result, robotic surgery enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. Robotic surgery minimizes postoperative pain, significantly shortens recovery and allows for a quicker return to normal activities.

All our urologists at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens perform robotic surgery, including:

  • Robotic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer
  • Robotic simple prostatectomy for benign prostate enlargement
  • Robotic partial and radical nephrectomy for kidney tumors
  • Robotic radical cystectomy with urinary diversion for bladder cancer
  • Robotic adrenalectomy for adrenal tumors
  • Robotic pelvic and retroperitoneal lymph node dissections
  • Robotic inguinal lymph node dissection for penile cancer
  • Robotic sacrocolpopexy for female pelvic organ prolapse
  • Robotic reconstructive procedures, including pyeloplasty and ureteral reimplantation

Diverse staff

Given the great diversity of our community, we have multi-ethnic staff who are culturally attuned to patients and can interact with patients in their own language, helping them to better understand the care they are receiving. We believe this more personalized care enhances the patient experience at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens.

Patient-centered care from fellowship-trained specialists

The road to good urologic health requires skilled physicians, attentive staff, and a commitment to patient-centered care. At NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, providing high quality, compassionate, and safe care is our highest priority.
