Laparoscopic Robotic Pyeloplasty

When urine is formed by the kidney, it pools in an area called the renal pelvis. Almost like a funnel used to pour motor oil into your car engine, the renal pelvis is wide at the top and tapers at the bottom, “funneling” the urine into the…

Laparoscopy and Robotic Adrenalectomy

Adrenal tumors are relatively rare but can cause significant problems including hypertension, excessive sweating, palpitations, weight gain, headaches and other symptoms as a result of hormone production from the adrenal mass.
