On faculty at Weill Cornell Medicine, our fellowship-trained urologists treat the entire spectrum of urologic diseases, including disorders of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. The more than 15,000 patients we care for each year are of all ages and include both children and adults. We perform over 2,000 urologic surgeries annually. The breadth of urologic problems we address include:
Currently, nearly all urological cancer surgery and reconstructive surgery can be performed using robotic surgery. Robotic surgery is a specialized form of laparoscopic, minimally-invasive surgery and is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System. This advanced technology allows our surgeons to perform complex operations through just a few small incisions. The System features a magnified, 3D high-definition visualization system and tiny, wristed instruments that bend and rotate with greater precision and dexterity than the human hand.
As a result, robotic surgery enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. Robotic surgery minimizes postoperative pain, significantly shortens recovery and allows for a quicker return to normal activities.
All our urologists at NewYork-Presbyterian\Queens perform robotic surgery, including:
Diverse staff: Given the great diversity of our community, we have multi-ethnic staff who are culturally attuned to patients and can interact with patients in their own language, helping them to better understand the care they are receiving. We believe this more personalized care enhances the patient experience at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens.
Patient-centered, high quality care from fellowship-trained specialists: The road to good urologic health requires skilled physicians, attentive staff, and a commitment to patient-centered care. At NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens, providing high quality, compassionate and safe care is our highest priority.
