Urological Robotic Surgery at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall

Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Procedures

Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall has a state of the art robotic surgery program utilizing cutting edge technology through the daVinci® surgical system. Robotic laparoscopic surgery allows surgeons to have greater surgical precision, an increased range of motion and enhanced visibility. MSLC’s pioneering group of physicians have been able to perform minimally invasive prostatectomy, cystectomy, adrenalectomy and nephrectomies while shortening recovery time, risk of infection and effectively treating disease in patients.

daVinci assisted Urological procedures at MSLC include the following:

  • Prostatectomy for Prostate Cancer
  • Simple Prostatectomy for BPH
  • Partial Nephrectomy
  • Nephrectomy
  • Cystectomy
  • Adrenalectomy
  • Ureteral Reconstruction - Ureteral Reimplant
  • Correction of UPJ Obstruction
  • Sacrocolpopexy

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Utilizing the daVinci surgical system, our urologists are able to perform a more precise operation. The system is designed to expand and enhance physician’s capabilities by virtually extending their eyes and hands with a high-definition 3D camera and wristed instruments.

With greater surgical precision, an increased range of motion and enhanced visibility, physicians are able to perform urological procedures including a radical prostatectomy, partial nephrectomy, cystectomy, and adrenalectomy through 1-2 centimeter incisions. Patients experience less pain, reduced blood loss, fewer transfusions, and less scarring. These result in a faster recovery that allow patients to return to normal daily activities quicker.
