The Da Vinci Robot has revolutionized the way we are able to perform minimally invasive surgery.
In urology, the robotic platform allows us to use small key-hole sized incisions to remove tumors and organs without having to make a large incision. The surgical technique offers precision and enhances the postoperative recovery for the patient in terms of shorter hospital stay, less pain, and less blood loss. So far, studies have shown cancer control and functional outcomes after robotic surgery to be equivalent to open surgery for the majority or urologic cancers.
Dr. Wong specializes in robotic surgery for all kinds of urologic applications, including:
- Radical Prostatectomy
- Radical Nephrectomy
- Partial Nephrectomy
- Ureteral Reimplantation
- Simple Prostatectomy
- Radical Cystectomy
- Partial Cystectomy
- Lymph Node Dissection
- And more – virtually any open surgery can be performed using robotics!
