The Division of Urology at New York Hospital Queens (NYHQ) offers the
community state of the art, high-quality urological care available
anywhere today. The department’s staff includes a growing team of
full-time physicians as well as voluntary attending surgeons.
We are proud to offer the community state-of-the-art robotic surgery. Our robotic surgeons have expertise in the surgical management of all urologic conditions, including robotic prostatectomy, nephrectomy, and robotic cystectomy with urinary diversion. With more precise instrumentation and superior 3-dimensional visualization and magnification, robotic surgery enables more precise tissue handling in a minimally invasive fashion. For patients, this translates into excellent results with decreased postoperative pain and fewer side-effects from surgery.
• Decreased blood loss during surgery
• Vastly improved visualization and magnification of the surgical site
• Decreased postoperative pain
• Smaller incisions
• Faster recovery and return to work
In addition to laparoscopic and robotic surgery for urologic cancers, our staff has expertise in the management of the full spectrum of urologic diseases, ranging from erectile dysfunction, urinary stone disease, to benign prostate enlargement, to male and female urinary incontinence.
