Laparoscopy and Endourology Program

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical option for cancerous and non-cancerous urologic conditions involving various urologic organs such as the kidney, adrenal, bladder, testis and prostate. Endourology is a minimally invasive technique available to treat kidney stones. Stones may be extracted or fragmented using tiny instruments through natural body channels such as the urethra, bladder and ureter. In addition to treatment, the clinic helps determine the cause of kidney stone development and identifies methods to prevent further stone formation.

Care and Treatment


Surgery can be performed via tiny dime-sized incisions rather than large cuts. Postoperative patient recovery and pain can be dramatically reduced based on the laparoscopic surgical approach. Cosmesis, or appearance, can also be significantly improved in such surgical procedures.
