Click on the video below to see a demonstration of the da Vinci robotic system. The most common robotic platform available today.


Surgery is an accepted treatment for a broad range of urologic conditions. Recent advances in laparoscopic surgery like the development of robotic assistant technology have allowed for the expansion of minimally invasive procedures to be done for a growing number of urologic conditions.

The surgeons at KCUC are now using robotic-assisted procedures for conditions including, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, ureteral pelvic junction urinary obstruction, distal ureteral obstruction, and vaginal prolapse.

The da Vinci robotic system is now available at most of the major Kansas City hospitals and may be appropriate for your condition. Ask your surgeon if a robotic-assisted procedure is the right one for you.
