Urology Associates of South Bend Lead the Way in Innovative Robotic Surgery That South Bend Patients Trust
Robotic surgery is becoming an increasingly prevalent topic. One scholarly article reported that, as an outcome of the growing awareness of robotic surgery, search results yielded 19,000 publications utilizing that particular keyword alone. The same article referenced that in 2016, up to 3,000,000 operations had been performed utilizing the Da Vinci system for robotic surgery. These high figures further reinforce what urologists have long been hopeful for; robotic surgery produces promising results in the treatment of urological conditions. Find out how robotic surgery that South Bend experts approve of is available to help you accomplish your urological treatment goals.
UASB—Champion in Robotic Surgery That South Bend Patients Trust
In the year 2000, there were only 18 Da Vinci robotic surgery systems in the world. By 2016, there were 3,700. Why the exponential growth in robotic surgery? There are a few reasons. Robotic surgery tools, such as the Da Vinci System, give surgeons a level of precision and delicacy that stands unparalleled against more primitive surgical approaches. This is a major advantage in fields like urology where laparoscopic options can more effectively and safely address complex, intricate areas of the body.
As an added value, robotic surgery can successfully address a number of urological conditions, including:
- Prostate Cancer
- Kidney Disease
- Kidney Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Urinary Obstruction
Robotic surgery is such a reliable method of treating prostate cancer that it has become the primary therapeutic pathway. Robotic surgery is also minimally invasive, requiring only small incisions (or sometimes no incisions at all). UASB is the choice for robotic surgery that South Bend patients prefer largely due to the fact that many procedures can be performed in our offices.
Major Advantages of Robotic Surgery
While robotic surgery offers diversity in treating urological conditions, it also offers patients a range of benefits, including:
- Rapid recovery time
- Little to no discomfort
- Lowered risk of complications
- Few restrictions in resuming regular lifestyle (depending on the procedure)
There are even more benefits to choosing UASB for robotic surgery that South Bend patients trust. Our urologists keep up-to-date with the most innovative approaches in the treatment of urological conditions. Our patients’ safety, comfort and privacy are our top priorities.
While the best way to know for sure if you are a candidate for urologic robotic surgery is to come in for a consultation, if you have prostate cancer, kidney disease, kidney cancer, bladder cancer or urinary obstruction(s), you most likely qualify for a robotic surgical procedure.
What Happens Next?
In addition to treating our patients with robotic surgery, UASB also offers a number of other therapies and treatments to address a range of urological conditions, including:
- Cystoscopy, urodynamic testing, electrodiagnostic testing and other diagnostics
- Medication to target specific urological conditions (incontinence, infertility, etc.)
- Other types of surgery
- Myofascial therapy, pelvic muscle training and relaxation techniques
- Biofeedback, electrical stimulation and Posterior-Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS)
- BOTOX Therapy
