Pediatric Robotic Urology Surgery
Surgeons at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, lead the nation in utilizing the latest robotic surgery tools to treat children with urological disorders. We are, in fact, one of the few hospitals to offer robotic surgery for pediatric urological disorders, providing our young patients with superior urological surgery outcomes, including less pain, increased precision, reduced scarring and shorter recovery periods.
Working closely with the AdventHealth Global Robotics Institute which has performed more than 5,000 successful robotic surgeries to date, including the first robotic procedures in Central Florida, our surgeons can perform a number of urological procedures robotically.
Robotic Urological Procedures We Offer
- Uretal Reimplantations
A robotic surgery used to correct vesicoureteral reflux and ureteral obstructions without the need to open the bladder.
- Robotic Pyeloplasty
A urological procedure used to remove ureteropelvic junction obstructions (UPJO)
- Robotic Nephrectomy
A procedure conducted to improve the efficiency of poorly functioning kidneys.
- Robotic Partial Nephrectomy
A robotic procedure to correct renal duplications with poorly functional moieties.
- Robotic Appendicovesicostomies
This urological procedure allows complex reconstructions in cases where the patient is diagnosed with neurogenic bladder or spina bifida/myelomeningocele.
- Robotic Bladder Augmentation
This robotic surgery allows an ileocystoplasty or colocystoplasty to be performed using minimally invasive surgery.
- Robotic Antegrade Continence Enema
Used to manage a neurogenic bowel.
- Robotic Excision of the Urachus
A procedure used to treat and correct patent urachus and urachal cysts
Far Reaching Benefits
For children, robotic urological procedures mean that recovery times are reduced from weeks to just days in many cases. For a major urology surgery, the recovery time can be cut almost in half. What’s more, there’s less stress on the child and a reduced chance of complications or infection. Scarring is also reduced.
