Laproscopic and Robotic Urology

Laparoscopic & Robotic surgery has revolutionized the way patients are treated for a variety of conditions because these minimally invasive procedures result in less discomfort, quicker recovery times and better outcomes for patients than traditional "open" surgery.

Urologic conditions for which KIMS currently offers Minimally invasive surgery include kidney stones, live donor nephrectomy, pelvic organ prolapse, prostate cancer, renal cell carcinoma, renal cysts, transitional cell carcinoma, urethral stricture, and ureteropelvic junction obstruction. While minimally invasive surgery has been used successfully in adults, faculty members at KIMS have successfully refined the use of laparoscopic and robotic surgery in children, as well. Some of these procedures include nephrectomy, which removes malformed or dysfunctional kidneys; pyeloplasty, which removes blockages in the ureter; and treatment of undescended testicles in infants.
