• Robotic Surgery 101

    Robotic surgery provides urologists with the ability to view the patient’s anatomy in a more detailed and dynamic way. If you’ve been diagnosed with prostate or kidney cancer and have questions about what treatment to pursue, then watch this video to learn a bit about robotic surgery.

    Robotic surgery allows for nerve-sparing to be a more precise procedure and lets urologists get a better view of a patient’s nerve structure. Also, this technology helps surgeons see tumors more accurately to help ensure their complete removal in the case of kidney cancer.

    If you’re interested in minimally invasive treatments for kidney or prostate cancer, then contact Urology Associates, P.C. at (855) 901-1338 to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced urologists in Tennessee.

  • Spotlight on Advanced Robotic Surgery

    The term “robotic surgery” is somewhat of a misnomer because the surgeon, rather than the equipment, is in charge throughout the procedure. With robotic surgery, a urologist can perform complex, minimally invasive procedures. Unlike traditional laparoscopic surgery; however, the urologist also has the benefit of superior 3D visualization and a full range of movement of the surgical instruments.

    To hear more about this advancement in urologic surgeries, watch this interview with Dr. Matt Hassan of Urology Associates, P.C. He explains how the technology works and describes some of the conditions he can treat with robot-assisted surgery, including prostate cancer and kidney cancer.

    If you have kidney or bladder problems, erectile dysfunction, or similar health issues, you can schedule a consultation with a urologist at Urology Associates, P.C. by calling (888) 329-7700.
