Tests & Treatments

  • Cystectomy
    This procedure can be done robotically utilizing the da Vinci® surgical system, which allows the surgeon to view the surgical area in high definition, making the bladder removal operation very precise.

  • Cystography
    This procedure, performed with an endoscope, allows physicians to assess problems with bladder emptying and urinary incontinence.

  • Cystometry
    Cystometry involves having a catheter inserted into the urethra until it reaches the bladder.

  • InterStim
    If you suffer from a neurogenic bladder or overactive bladder and have not had success with medical treatments, sacral nerve stimulation (InterStim®) may help you find relief.

  • Transurethral Resection of the Prostate
    If you are experiencing severe lower urinary tract symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), your physician may recommend a procedure known as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP).
