Urologic Robotic Surgery at St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital 

 

 

St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital has a state of the art robotic surgery program utilizing cutting edge technology through the

daVinci surgical system. Robotic laparoscopic surgery allows surgeons to have greater surgical precision, an increased

range of motion and enhanced visibility. SLCH’s pioneering group of physicians have been able to perform minimally

invasive prostatectomy, cystectomy, adrenalectomy and nephrectomies while shortening recovery time, risk of infection

and effectively treating disease in patients.

 

Utilizing the daVinci surgical system, our urologists are able to perform a more precise operation than conventional

procedure. The system is designed to expand and enhance physician’s capabilities by virtually extending their eyes and

hands with a high-definition 3D camera and wristed instruments. With greater surgical precision, an increased range of

motion and enhanced visibility, physicians are able to perform urological procedures including a radical prostatectomy,

partial nephrectomy, cystectomy and adrenalectomy through 1-2 centimeter incisions. Patients experience less pain,

reduced blood loss and fewer transfusions as well as less scarring, and are able to return to normal daily activities

quicker.
