Institute of Urology

The Institute of Urology is dedicated to providing the most modern diagnostics and treatment to patients afflicted with disorders and diseases of the male and female urinary system and the male reproductive system.

St. Luke’s is at the forefront of cutting-edge of surgical technology in the field of urologic medicine. Its urologists and support nursing and technical staff are well-trained in minimally invasive surgical procedures with robotic assisted surgery at the leading edge. As back-up, the Institute employs real-time ultrasound guidance, fiber-optic endoscopic equipment and various diagnostic and treatment lasers for various urinary conditions.

The staff is composed of board-certified and fellowship-trained urologists who are experts in the different aspects of genito-urinary malignancy, urinary obstruction, urinary stone disease, pediatric urology and male sexual dysfunction.

The Institute currently employs urologic treatment using the state-of-the-art da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery. Complex urological procedures such as nephrectomy (kidney removal) or partial nephrectomy (nephron-sparing surgery) and even radical prostatectomy can be performed safely and with minimal post-operative risks through the robotic system.

With advances in medical technology and investment in leading edge therapeutic equipment, the Institute provides the best healthcare with superior clinical outcomes in treatment and success and better benefits in terms of shorter hospital stay, less blood loss, improved pain management and faster recovery to normal functioning for the patient.

Foremost in this is the state-of-the-art third generation da Vinci robotic-assisted surgical system. Complex urological procedures such as radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer, nephrectomy (kidney removal) or partial nephrectomy (nephron-sparing surgery) are rendered even safer, with minimal blood loss and post-operative pain, lower post-operative risks, faster recovery, and shorter hospital stay through the robotic system.
