  • da Vinci® Robotic Prostatectomy: High-tech and minimally invasive, the da Vinci® Robotic Prostatectomy represents the next era of prostate cancer surgery. With the aid of physician-controlled robotic instrumentation and three-dimensional imagery of the operating site, Urologists are able to achieve outstanding precision and reduce the risk associated with traditional open surgery using this state-of-the-art prostate cancer treatment.
  • Green Light™ Laser Ablation:  A minimally invasive surgical technique for BPH proven to reduce the risk, operation time, and recovery period of traditional Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP).
  • Laparoscopic & Robotic Nephrectomy: Less invasive than traditional open kidney surgery, a laparoscopic or robotic nephrectomy is performed through a series of small incisions called ports. Using the aid of a scope, the operating site is visualized and the surgeon's actions carried out through the insertion of laparoscopic instrumentation into the various ports. Advantages include a smaller incision, less risk of blood loss, and a shorter period of recovery.
  • Vasectomy: Today, technological advances have made surgical vasectomy a low-risk and effective procedure. Using the no-scalpel vasectomy technique, the urologic specialists of AUUA make a midline puncture in the scrotal skin. This non-invasive approach reduces the risk of side effects, infection, and delayed recovery.
