da Vinci Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery
Physicians at Associated Medical Professionals of NY are trained in Intuitive Surgical's da Vinci Surgical System. This system allows increased precision, visualization, dexterity and control of laparoscopic instruments which are placed through small incisions into the abdomen to perform multiple urologic surgeries including treatment for:
- Urologic Cancers
- Prostate Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Bladder Cancer & Bladder Reconstruction
- Reconstructive Female Incontinence
- Kidney Stones
- Other Non-Invasive Surgical Treatments for Urologic Maladies.
These surgeries are performed at multiple hospitals by our Physicians including SUNY Upstate Community General Campus, St. Joseph's Hospital of Syracuse, and Crouse Hospital. We are working on expanding our robotic capabilities to other outlying hospitals in the Central New York area. The advantages of the da Vinci robotic-assisted surgical techniques include surgery through smaller incisions, faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays, use of less pain medications, better visualization for the surgeon with magnification, and generally less blood loss.
