If you have recently been diagnosed with a urologic cancer
or disease, your doctor may recommend surgery. In the past several years, major advances in technology have changed the entire scope of the surgery landscape. Patients now have the option to have less-invasive surgeries that allow them to recover quickly and return to their normal activities sooner than after traditional "open" surgeries.
Leading Specialists in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery in the Mid-Atlantic Region
The Minimally Invasive Surgery Group and Robotics at Chesapeake Urology Associates is the Mid-Atlantic region's premiere group for minimally invasive surgery and robotics. Our group has the largest number of physicians in the region who specialize in performing laparoscopic and robotic procedures for a broad range of kidney, bladder and prostate conditions and diseases. Our surgeons use state-of-the-art robotic technology
to improve the precision and successful outcomes of certain procedures.
The robot provides superb visibility, acting like an extension of the surgeon's hands to give better access to the area undergoing surgery. Robotic procedures are available at several locations where our doctors operate. Learn more about the (DaVinci) robotic surgical system and robot-assisted surgery.
CUA urologists performed the first robotic cystectomy
(bladder removal) in Maryland and the first robotic prostatectomy
(prostate removal) in a Maryland community hospital. Our physicians have performed more than 1,000 surgeries in the past ten years using the most advanced and minimally invasive urological procedures available. Patients who receive minimally invasive treatments often experience less pain while recovering more quickly and suffering fewer complications.
