Surgical Care for Prostate & Urological Problems

At Banner Health, we understand this and provide a safe, private and respectful environment so you can get the care or treatments you need.

What Surgical Treatments Are Available for My Condition?
We use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible, such as laser surgery and robotic prostatectomy, a type of robot-assisted prostate surgery. As with most minimally invasive approaches, this type of surgery requires smaller incisions and can mean less pain, faster healing and a shorter hospital stay. It can also lessen your chance of impotence or incontinence.
Your doctor will talk with you about all of your treatment options. We’re with you and your family every step of the way. We’ll answer questions and help you prepare for surgery, if you decide it’s the best option for you, or any other treatment you choose.
