Minimally Invasive Approach

Andrew Joel, Md, FACS and Robert Mordkin, MD, FACSWhenever possible, your doctor will perform your surgery using minimally invasive, or laparoscopic, techniques.

During a laparoscopy, your doctor makes very small incisions and uses a small telescope with built-in magnification and long, thin surgical instruments. That means you may experience less pain after surgery, shorter hospitalization, faster recovery, and better cosmetic results.

The computer-enhanced da Vinci® Surgical System's robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movement combined with a magnified, three-dimensional view.

Robert Mordkin, MD, FACS and Andrew Joel, MD, FACS were early adopters of robotic technology when the FDA first approved it in 2004. Since that time, they have performed hundreds of robotic-assisted urological surgeries.
