Benefits of Robotic Urological Surgery

Trained, experienced, and highly-skilled in minimally-invasive, robotic urological surgery using the da Vinci surgical system, the surgeons at the Urology Group of Princeton are pleased to share the following video showing the precision of the device. The benefits of robotic urological surgery include better vision, more precision, and more control due to the system’s magnification and 3D capabilities, elimination of tremors, and multiple degrees and directions of movement. Through da Vinci’s robotic wrists, which are capable of rotating 540 degrees, surgeons are able to perform movements that aren’t possible with human hands. In short, the robot is more dexterous and sees better than a human, which decreases the chance of error caused by natural hand tremors. Other bots have followed, but the da Vinci is still the only one approved in the U.S., and completes an estimated 200,000 operations each year.” For more information about robot-assisted surgery for urological issues and to find out if it’s right for you, please call the office (609.924.6487) to schedule a consultation with one of our board certified physicians.

Advancements in minimally invasive surgery

The Urology Group of Princeton is pleased to announce that, this year, The University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP), one of our primary outpatient surgical centers, secured its position on the leading edge of robotic surgery with an investment in the most state-of-the-art robotic console, the “da Vinci Xi” surgical system, which complements their existing “da Vinci Si” robotic console.
