Procedures

A urologist performs many procedures for treatment of urinary tract diseases, erectile dysfunction, kidney stones, vasectomies, prostate cancer and bladder cancer. The urologist may recommend an ambulatory, office-based procedure. It may be cystoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure that examines the bladder and urethra, allowing the doctor to view the urinary tract; urodynamics, which assesses bladder functionality for patients who have incontinence; and/or a biopsy. These procedures are performed in order to effectively diagnose and treat clinical problems.

We perform the following procedures, including, but not limited to:

Robotic-assisted surgery is a leading edge technology. Because it is minimally invasive, the precision of robotic technology is ideal for delicate and complex urologic surgeries. These include prostatectomies, in which the target site is tightly confined and surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and erectile function. Surgeons using a robotic system have an exacting tool for avoiding damage to surrounding nerves and helping enhance recovery times and the return to normal activities.
Nephrectomy is the surgical removal of a kidney, or part of a kidney. This surgery can be needed because of cancer, other kidney diseases or injuries, or because a kidney is being donated for a transplant.
A prostatectomy is a surgical procedure for the partial or complete removal of the prostate. It may be performed to treat prostate cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia
A cystolithotomy is a urologic procedure to remove one or more bladder stones.It is typically performed for a patient with large or numerous bladder stones or if an endoscopic approach has not been successful.
This is a procedure in which a small scope (like a flexible telescope) is inserted into the bladder and ureter and it is used to diagnose and treat a variety of problems in the urinary tract. For ureteral stones, it allows the urologist to actually look into the ureter, find the stone and remove it.

The surgeon passes a tiny wire basket into the lower ureter via the bladder, grabs the stone and pulls the stone free. This is an outpatient procedure with or without a stent inserted (a tube that is placed in the ureter to hold it open).
SpaceOAR hydrogel is an option for men who undergo radiation treatment for prostate cancer. It acts as a spacer providing space between the rectum and the prostate, making it much less likely that the rectum is exposed to radiation. It is injected into place prior to the start of radiation treatment.

Patients may be awake or asleep under general anesthesia for the procedure. SpaceOAR hydrogel is minimally invasive, remains stable during radiation therapy and then is gradually absorbed by the body after radiation therapy has been completed.
Treatment consists of fluids and urinary retention medications. Treatment includes pain relievers and drinking lots of water to help pass the stone. Medical procedures may be needed to remove or break up larger stones.
Treatment consists of supportive care and urinary retention medications. Treatments include medications that relax the bladder or shrink the prostate, surgery, and minimally invasive surgery.
Vasectomy is a medical sterilization procedure for men who are sure they don't want a future pregnancy.
Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin from the human penis. In the most common procedure, the foreskin is opened, adhesions are removed, and the foreskin is separated from the glans. After that, a circumcision device may be placed, and then the foreskin is cut off.
A hydrocelectomy is a surgical procedure to repair a hydrocele, which is a buildup of fluid around a testicle. Often a hydrocele will resolve itself without treatment. However, as a hydrocele grows larger, it can cause swelling, pain, and discomfort in the scrotum and may need surgical repair.
The UroLift procedure is a revolutionary, minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate, or BPH, that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra.
