Advanced Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques at Arizona Urology Specialists
Arizona Urology Specialists’ Minimally Invasive Surgery and Robotics team provides the most advanced minimally invasive urological procedures available. Minimally invasive surgery includes laparoscopic and robotic surgery procedures which are performed in both hospitals as well as outpatient Ambulatory Surgery Centers. Minimally invasive procedures are performed with the smallest amount of damage and trauma possible to the body.
By utilizing specialized instruments and often robotic assistance, your surgeon is able to perform complex surgical procedures safely through a small incision, often under one centimeter. This provides the benefit of less trauma to the body and quicker recovery. Magnification is also frequently utilized during these procedures to provide improved visualization of important anatomic structures such as nerve and blood vessels to prevent damage with improved outcomes.
