Surgical Care in the Diagnosis & Treatment of Urologic Conditions
Many urologic procedures can be performed within the office under local anesthesia and take between 5-30 minutes. Additionally, nitrous oxide is available to increase the comfort of many of our in-office procedures.
We perform a multitude of surgical procedures that require general anesthesia and are performed in a hospital operating room. Here is a sampling of the most commonly performed procedures:
Procedures marked with a * can be performed either via an open surgical approach or via a minimally-invasive approach (laparoscopic/robotic)
Cystectomy (removal of bladder)*
ESWL (kidney stone lithotripsy)

Partial nephrectomy (removal of kidney tumor only)*
