Minimally Invasive Urological Treatment

Minimally invasive urological treatments are techniques to resolve urological issues that a surgeon performs on the body with minimum incisions and pain. These are a combination of techniques that cause less trauma to the body. To know more about minimally invasive urological treatments, you should search for urology hospitals near you.

What are minimally invasive urological treatments?

Minimally invasive urological treatments are safer than open surgeries. It involves limiting the number of cuts to the body which leads to faster healing. Also, the patient doesn’t have to spend a long time in the hospital. 

In this treatment, the surgeon does not open the skin like in open surgery and operates through small cuts made on the skin. The surgeon makes numerous small cuts, utilizes lights and a camera to get a better view, and operates without causing much pain.

What are the types of minimally invasive urological treatments?

There are two types of minimally invasive urological treatments:

Laparoscopy: It is a low-risk diagnostic procedure requiring small incisions to examine the abdominal region. It is also known as diagnostic laparoscopy. It is a procedure that uses a laparoscope which is a thin-long tube equipped with lights and a camera to give a better view to the surgeon during the surgery.

Robotic surgery or robotic-assisted surgery: It is a highly advanced technological procedure that uses an electronic operating station. The surgeon controls a robotic arm to perform the surgery and a camera to precisely look into the skin while performing the surgery.

What are the conditions in which minimally invasive urological treatments are done?

  • Cancer: rectal cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, penile cancer, etc.
  • Kidney stones
  • Cysts: Kidney cysts, ovarian cysts, endometriosis
  • Removal of organs: Colectomy, hysterectomy, oophorectomy, nephrectomy, cholecystectomy, splenectomy, vasectomy
  • Urological repair surgeries: penile surgery and implants
  • Kidney transplant

Why are minimally invasive urological treatments done?

Minimally Invasive Urological Treatments are safer and cause less pain. The healing process is better and faster, than open surgeries. Along with these advantages, minimally invasive urological treatments cause less damage to the skin, muscle, and tissue. Less blood is lost during the surgery, and there’s the least risk of infection. Also, the post-surgery scars are less explicit.

When to see a doctor?

When you see any symptoms, get yourself checked at a urology hospital near you. A urology specialist might recommend laparoscopic or robotic-assisted surgery in the following cases:

  • Transplant
  • Cancer
  • Cysts
  • Stones removal
  • Organ removal surgery
  • Organ repair surgery

What are the risk factors?

The risk factors include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Inflammation of the abdominal wall
  • Clotting of blood 
  • Complications with anesthesia
  • Longer surgery period increases the risk of injuring other organs


Minimally Invasive Urological Treatments are a combination of techniques that involves making numerous smaller incisions while performing a surgery rather than big cuts. These surgeries are less painful, have a lower risk of infection and a short recovery time. These treatments utilize high-definition cameras and lights operated either by robotic-assisted technology or surgeons themselves. Minimally invasive urological treatments are safer than open surgeries and have fewer disadvantages.

What medications should I take before a Laparoscopic surgery?

You should talk about the medications you have been taking with a urology specialist before the surgery. The urology doctor might change the dose of your medications like anticoagulants, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Vitamin K, and other medications that might affect blood clotting before the surgery.

What tests should I take before a minimally invasive urological treatment?

The urology doctor will suggest a few tests like urine analysis, blood tests, ECG, ultrasound, and CT scan to understand the patient’s condition. You should never take any tests without consulting a urology doctor.

Is it safe to get your surgery done by a robot?

Yes, it is completely safe to get a robotic-assisted surgery because it is highly advanced and well manufactured.
