Urological Robotic Surgery

robotic urological surgery at Banner Thunderbird  

Banner Thunderbird Medical Center offers a minimally invasive option for urological problems with our robotic surgery program.

Our specially trained surgeons can make dime-sized incisions that mean less pain and a faster recovery time.

Specifically, Banner Thunderbird surgeons can perform:

  • Removal of the bladder (cystectomy): Removal of all or part of the bladder and possibly the removal of nearby lymph nodes and organs that may contain cancer
  • Removal of a small renal tumor (partial nephrectomy):  Robotic surgery allows the tumor to be removed while  preserving the remainder of the kidney.
  • Removal of blocked ureter: Removes part of blocked ureter and reconnects the ureter and kidney.
