Procedures Using Robotic Surgery
Throughout the Banner Health system, we offer patients the opportunity for minimally invasive surgery through the use of robotics.
Surgical robots perform minimally invasive procedures in:
- Heart Care
- Prostate cancer
- Removal of the prostate gland (prostatectomy): Robotic-assisted surgery offers surgeons a way to effectively remove cancer while allowing for the faster return of urinary continence and sexual function.
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 for the removal while preserving the remainder of the kidney.
Removal of blocked ureter: Removes part of blocked ureter and reconnects the ureter and kidney.
