Our expert urologists use minimally invasive techniques to treat patients
with stones, tumors and other diseases of the urologic system, including
the kidneys, bladder and prostate gland. They can also correct defects
of the urinary tract.
Minimally invasive procedures may require only a few small incisions or
none at all. This means patients have less pain, faster recovery and fewer
- Complex kidney and urinary tract stone management. When needed, soundwave
treatment and/or lasers are combined with minimally invasive surgery.
- Endoscopic surgery. This minimally invasive approach repairs urinary tract
defects. This includes removing tumors, while saving the organ and correcting
a non-cancerous enlarged prostate.
- Laparoscopic urological surgery. This is a minimally invasive technique
requiring only a few tiny incisions to treat cancerous and non-cancerous
conditions of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate and adrenal glands.
- Minimally invasive removal of kidney for live-donor transplant.
Huntington Hospital also offers robotic prostatectomy, utilizing the state-of-the-art
daVinci Surgical System, providing numerous benefits to the patient and surgeon.
“The da Vinci system allows for meticulous dissection and reconstruction,
similar to the open technique. This is simply not possible with regular
laparoscopy.” – Ramin Khalili, MD, urologist.
