Dr. Rinard in Robotic-Assisted SurgeryRobotic-Assisted Surgery

Our team of urologists have all been specially trained to perform laparoscopic and robotic-assisted procedures. Surgeries for kidney cancer, kidney dysfunction, urinary tract disorders and congenital abnormalities can now be done using the daVinci Xi surgical system.

Patient Benefits

Robotic surgery enables our surgeons to perform a more precise operation than conventional surgery. The instruments used during robotic surgery allow surgeons increased dexterity, precision and maneuverability. Utilizing this technology instead of traditional open surgery, patients typically experience:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Minimized blood loss
  • Decreased risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker recovery time

As with any surgical procedure, benefits cannot be guaranteed. Successful outcomes depend on the procedure and the patient. If you feel you have a urologic condition, please speak with your primary care physician or provider about a referral.
