Urologic Surgery

Urologic surgery focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males. Urologic surgery is the integration of surgical activities for the pelvis-the colon, urogenital, and gynecological organs-primarily for the treatment of obstructions, dysfunction, malignancies, and inflammatory diseases.

Common urologic operations include:

  • renal (kidney) surgery
  • kidney removal (nephrectomy)
  • surgery of the ureters, including ureterolithotomy or removal of calculus (stones) in the ureters
  • bladder surgery
  • pelvic lymph node dissection
  • prostatic surgery, removal of the prostate
  • testicular (scrotal) surgery
  • urethra surgery
  • surgery to the penis
  • robotic prostatectomies
  • robotic nephrectomies
