  • Laparoscopic Radical Nephrectomy - to remove a kidney with a large tumor
  • Robotic/Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy - to removed a small tumor from a kidney
  • Laparoscopic Nephroureterectomy - to remove a kidney/ureter afflicted with transitional cell carcinoma
  • Robotic Dismembered pyeloplasty - to repair kidney with poor drainage
  • Robotic Renal Stone removal - to remove large kidney or ureteral stones
  • Robotic Repair of Upper Ureteral Stricture
  • Laparoscopic Repair of Retroperitoneal Fibrosis
  • Robotic/Laparoscopic Ureteral Reimplant - to repair and reimplant a damaged or strictured distal ureter.
  • Robotic Partial Cystectomy - to remove a localized tumor in the urinary bladder
