Hydronephrosis occurs when urine builds up in the kidneys and cannot drain out to the bladder. The kidneys swell from the excess urine. The condition may affect one kidney or both. Hydronephrosis is not a disease itself, but rather a sign of another disease or condition affecting the kidneys. Swelling of the kidneys can lead to kidney damage.
This is a serious condition that requires care from your doctor. Most patients who have hydronephrosis will not know it until it has already damaged the kidney. Therefore, if you are at risk for this condition, it is important to be under the care of a physician. Kidney, Ureter, Bladder, and Kidney Stone
The use of robotics takes minimally invasive techniques into a new era, further minimizing the physical and emotional impact of surgery on patients. Surgeries are performed through small incisions, which replace the large incisions needed for conventional open surgeries.
Patient benefits may include
• less patient trauma and pain
• minimal scarring
• less blood loss
• faster recovery
• shorter hospital stays
Robotically-assisted minimally invasive surgery represents a third generation of surgery, one which builds upon the advances to open surgery introduced by minimally invasive surgery. Robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movement combined with three-dimensional visualization of the operative site.
Minimally invasive surgery (also known as MIS, laparoscopic, or endoscopic surgery) allows physicians to perform many types of surgical procedures through 1-2 cm incisions. For most patients, a minimally invasive approach offers substantially less pain, less blood loss and a much shorter recovery. Other advantages include reduced need for blood transfusions, minimal scarring, less risk of infection, shorter hospital stays and quicker return to normal activities.
• Shorter hospital stay
• Less pain and scarring
• Less risk of infection
• Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
• Faster recovery
• Quicker return to normal activities
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
