Robotic Surgery in Urology

Urology treatment using robotic surgery has many benefits for patients including shorter recovery times. MaineHealth has skilled surgeons with advanced training and experience in robotic surgery.

What is robotic surgery?

If surgery is needed to treat your urological condition, you may be a candidate for laparoscopic or robotic surgery. It is minimally invasive with a faster recovery time.

Robotic-assisted surgery is a leading-edge technology. Your surgeon uses a robotic tool that helps with delicate operations. With robotic surgery, patients have:

  • Fewer complications

  • Less pain

  • Less blood loss

  • Quicker recovery

  • Smaller scars

There is always a risk for infection during any surgery. Robotic surgery helps minimize the chance of infection. Talk to your doctor about the benefits of robotic surgery, and whether you qualify.
