Our expert urologists use minimally invasive techniques to treat patients with stones, tumors and other diseases of the urologic system, including the kidneys, bladder, and prostate gland. They can also correct defects of the urinary tract.
Minimally invasive procedures may require only a few small incisions or none at all. This means patients have less pain, faster recovery, and fewer complications.
- Complex kidney and urinary tract stone management. When needed, soundwave treatment and/or lasers are combined with minimally invasive surgery.
- Endoscopic surgery. This minimally invasive approach repairs urinary tract defects. This includes removing tumors, while saving the organ and correcting a non-cancerous enlarged prostate.
- Laparoscopic urological surgery. This is a minimally invasive technique requiring only a few tiny incisions to treat cancerous and non-cancerous conditions of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate and adrenal glands.
- Minimally invasive removal of kidney for live-donor transplant.
Huntington Hospital also offers robotic prostatectomy, utilizing the state-of-the-art da Vinci Surgical System, providing numerous benefits to the patient and surgeon.
“The da Vinci system allows for meticulous dissection and reconstruction, similar to the open technique. This is simply not possible with regular laparoscopy.” – Ramin Khalili, MD, urologist.
