We now perform many surgical procedures using minimally invasive techniques. These techniques offer patients such benefits as reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, a quicker return to daily activities and less scarring. Complications are minimal and success rates are comparable to those of conventional surgery. Laparoscopic procedures include partial or radical nephrectomy, prostatectomy, pelvic organ prolapse and adrenalectomy.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy is the most advanced form of surgical treatment for prostate cancer. Our surgeons are among a limited number of physicians in Ohio to offer this advanced option.
Procedures that can be performed laparoscopically include:
- Kidney surgery – partial or complete removal of the kidney
- Adrenal surgery – removal of the adrenal gland
- Prostate surgery – removal of the prostate for cancer
- Prolapse surgery – correction of loss of support for vagina/bladder
