Our urologists treat all types of male and female urinary tract conditions in the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra, as well as conditions in the male reproductive system. They perform a wide range of surgical procedures, including vasectomy and circumcision.
A urologic surgeon is a urologist with specialized training in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of conditions of the male and female urinary tract, as well as the male reproductive organs.
Below is a list of urologic conditions and the related procedures that your surgeon may perform.
Whenever possible, Essentia surgeons treat your condition using advanced technologies and minimally invasive techniques. That means you’ll have less pain and scarring and a quicker recovery.
For more than a decade, Essentia has offered robotic-assisted urologic surgery at some of its hospitals. Robotic surgery involves the use of very sophisticated equipment to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures. One or two surgeons operate the robot during each procedure, and this robotic-assisted approach improves the surgeon's view, precision, and control. Robotic surgery has been proven to improve surgical outcomes.
