Many pediatric urological diagnostic and surgical techniques can be done with minimally invasive surgery (MIS). From diagnostic endoscopy to laparoscopic and robotic surgery, these innovative procedures are done with specially designed thin instruments through tiny incisions.
The benefits of minimally invasive urological surgery for our young patients are many, including:
- Fewer complications
- Reduced pain
- Reduced blood loss
- Less scarring
- Less damage to tissue and muscle
- Shorter stay in the hospital
- Quicker return to normal activities
