Laparoscopic Surgical Procedures
Thanks to amazing advances in medicine, patients now have the option to have less-invasive surgeries that allow them to recover quickly and return to their normal activities sooner than after traditional “open” surgeries. The Minimally Invasive Surgery and Robotics group at Arizona Urology Specialists are among the region’s leading specialists in laparoscopic and robotic procedures for a broad range of kidney, bladder, and prostate conditions and diseases.
Laparoscopy is one minimally invasive technique employed by the skilled urologic surgeons at Arizona Urology Specialists. In these procedures, the surgeon makes several very small incisions instead of one large one, inserting tiny surgical instruments (e.g. cystoscope, laparoscope, ureteroscope) and a miniature video camera to view the surgical area.
Arizona Urology Specialists’ highly trained surgeons are leaders in using laparoscopic techniques. Some procedures can be performed using standard laparoscopy or robot-assisted techniques, depending on the disease and the preference of the surgeon.
