Urological Surgery

We offer surgical treatment options for urological conditions affecting the urinary tract and reproductive system. This includes a variety of conditions including kidney stones, bladder cancer, and other urinary issues. Surgery can be performed using open surgery, laparoscopic surgery or robotic surgery.

Conditions We Treat

Urological surgery can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Kidney Stones
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Erectile Dysfunction

Treatment Options

During traditional open surgery a large incision is made in the affected area, and organs are either repaired or removed using hand-held surgical equipment. Laparoscopic surgery involves making several small incisions. Afterward, a thin flexible tube with a camera attached to it is inserted into the incision, allowing the surgeon to see inside the body and perform surgery. During robotic surgery, our surgeons use the state of the art DaVinci robot to repair issues with incredible precision through very small incisions.

Northeast Georgia Medical Center offers robotic surgeries for the following urologic procedures:

Robotic Urological Surgery

Robotic surgery, utilizing the da Vinci Surgical System, is a less invasive technique than what is referred to as “open” surgery. With robotic surgery, the incisions made in your body by your surgeon are much smaller than the cut made during open surgery. Benefits of robotic surgery compared to open surgery include:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine
  • A faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring
