da Vinci Surgical System
Our urologists Dr. Joel and Dr. Mordkin have performed hundreds of da Vinci robotic surgeries.
The surgeons at Virginia Hospital Center Physician Group - Urology are some of the most experienced physicians in the entire mid-Atlantic region in using the da Vinci robotic technology. Dr. Mordkin first became involved in robotic procedures in 2004, shortly after the device was approved by the FDA for use in the United States. The surgeons have now performed hundreds of these robotic operations and routinely use the da Vinci robot for nearly all of the cancer surgeries that they perform, particularly in the surgical management of prostate cancer and kidney cancer. Dr. Mordkin and Dr. Joel routinely travel to other hospitals throughout the country to teach some of their specialized robotic skills. Dr. Mordkin serves as the Director of Robotic Surgery at the Virginia Hospital Center.
