Robotic Urologic Surgery

Surgery is often used to treat a variety of conditions affecting the organs of the male reproductive system and urinary tract. Given the sensitive nature of this area, many men are apprehensive about undergoing major surgery to treat their condition. Traditional urologic surgery requires large incisions to access the pelvic organs and may cause severe pain and long recovery times. There may also be long-term effects on continence and sexual function. Robotic urologic surgery can help ease common concerns by providing a safer, less invasive alternative to traditional surgery. ...

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. It affects the prostate, the gland located under the bladder and in front of the rectum that helps produce semen and allows sperm to move more effectively, among other functions. Although prostate cancer can be life-threatening, it often spreads slowly and requires only minimal treatment. When confined to the prostate gland, it can usually be treated effectively, making early detection crucial. ...

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

High intensity focused ultrasound, also known as HIFU, offers a targeted, noninvasive treatment for prostate cancer. Using ultrasound energy, or sound waves, HIFU can attack and destroy precise areas of malignant tissue within the prostate. These sound waves pass harmlessly through healthy tissue. When the sound waves reach the exact targeted focal point, they heat up intensely. The temperature increases to up to 90 degrees Celsius on the selected tissue, effectively killing the diseased cells. ...

Sacral Nerve Stimulation

Sacral nerve stimulation is an advanced electrical stimulation procedure performed to treat urinary incontinence and other bladder control problems in patients who have not responded to more conservative treatment options.

InterStim® Therapy

InterStim® therapy involves the implantation of device to treat problems with urination. Urge incontinence, commonly known as overactive bladder, is a common condition that occurs when an individual experiences sudden, compelling urges to urinate, frequent urination, or urinary incontinence. These symptoms occur because the bladder muscles that control the release of urine contract at inappropriate times. The same neurological problem may also lead to urine retention. InterStim therapy stimulates the affected nerves with electrical impulses (neurostimulation) in order to overcome bladder issues. It is used when other methods of bladder control have been ineffective. ...

Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic procedure that is performed to examine and treat conditions within the bladder that may not show up clearly on an X-ray or other common imaging procedure. With this procedure, doctors can clearly visualize targeted areas within the bladder. Doctors may perform a cystoscopy for a variety of reasons that may include: ...
