Restoring Function

If you’re about to undergo surgery to treat problems of the urinary or reproductive organs, you probably wonder about potential side effects. At Virtua, our surgeons are trained in using state-of-the-art techniques that may allow you to recover quickly and continue to enjoy normal function.

In men, urologic surgery often is performed to treat prostate cancer. For women, common surgeries include pelvic floor reconstruction and fistula repair. Urologic surgeons also address bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and blockage in the tube that carries urine from the kidney.

For some urology procedures, Virtua’s specially trained surgeons may use robotic-assisted surgery. This technology can provide the surgeon with a clearer view of the site of the operation, as well as the ability to move surgical instruments in a way that the human hand and wrist can’t achieve. This can improve the surgeon’s ability to spare surrounding nerves in this delicate area.

To schedule a consultation with a urologist, call 1-888-VIRTUA-3 (1-888-847-8823).
