Robotic Surgery for Urinary Obstruction

Robotic Surgery for Urinary Obstruction

One of the most common conditions affecting the kidneys is urinary obstruction. Obstruction can occur anywhere in the urinary tract and when it occurs, medical attention is required. A urinary obstruction can create serious side effects like infections and kidney stones. If left untreated, blockages can cause chronic pain and may damage the kidney over time.

If your doctor recommends surgery for a urinary obstruction, you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive robotic-assisted approach using the da Vinci® Surgical System. da Vinci uses state-of-the-art technology to help doctors perform this delicate operation. Compared to open surgery or traditional laparoscopic surgery, the da Vinci robotic system provides patients with the potential for:

  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer stitches and less scarring 
  • Lower risk of complications and infections
  • Less blood loss and the need for transfusions
  • Quicker recovery of normal activities
