Urology

Urology is a specialty that covers conditions of the male and female urinary-tract system (including the bladder, ureter, kidney, and urethra) and the male reproductive organs. The urinary and reproductive tracts are closely linked, and disorders of one often affect the other.

Urology surgeons at CMC perform a wide range of procedures, using minimally invasive approaches whenever possible. 

Some of these procedures include:
  • Bladder and kidney stone ablation
  • Bladder suspension
  • Circumcision
  • Cystoscopy
  • Erectile dysfunction (impotence)
  • Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy
  • Hydrocelectomy
  • Ileal loop
  • Laser ablation for bladder tumors
  • Node dissection
  • Prostate biopsy
  • Prostate laser surgery
  • Retrograde and stent placement
  • Robotic cystectomy (bladder cancer surgery)
  • Robotic nephrectomy
  • Transurethral resection of prostate

DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT AND TECHNOLOGIES

Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery

CMC is proud to offer the da Vinci® Intuitive Surgical Robotics System as an alternative to traditional open surgery. Using the robotic surgical system, your surgeon can perform delicate urologic procedures through a few small incisions. Patients typically benefit from less pain, fewer infections, a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery than with more invasive surgical procedures. CMC surgeons have extensive experience in minimally invasive surgical techniques and have been using the da Vinci® system for urologic surgery since 2003. If you need urologic surgery, ask if you are a candidate for minimally invasive surgery.
