Specialty:

  • Robotic-assisted surgery
    Robotic-assisted surgery is conducted through small incisions (minimally invasive surgery) using a robotic system. Robotic-assisted surgery is commonly used to perform gynecologic, general and urologic procedures and allows surgeons to have more flexibility, control and maneuverability than in traditional minimally invasive surgery. Patients can experience reduced trauma, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery after a robotic-assisted procedure.
  • Urology
    Urology is the surgical specialty that focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males.  Urologists and are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage patients with urological disorders. The organs covered by urology include the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis).
