Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery in urology is one of the field’s most exciting advances in the past decade. This laparoscopic technology uses a combination of highly magnified 3-D imagery and surgeon-guided robotic movements to perform delicate urologic surgeries with unmatched precision. The result: less bleeding, less pain, less scarring and a potentially easier recovery for your child.
Our surgeons at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children (in Wilmington, Del.), Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville (in Florida), and Nemours Children’s Hospital (in Orlando) use the state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotic surgery system. If your child needs urologic surgery, take comfort in the fact that our highly skilled experts can perform many types of corrective and reconstructive procedures in this minimally invasive way.
