Craig Peters, MD Principal Investigator Dr. Peters is the chief of the Division of Surgical Innovation, Technology, and Translation in the Joseph E. Robert, Jr., Center for Surgical Care and a principal investigator at the Sheikh Zayed Institute. As part of the Bioengineering Initiative at the Institute, he will focus his interests on using robotics in surgery for children. He will collaborate with colleagues to advance customized surgical planning and evaluation, enhanced tissue/cell visualization during surgery, and minimal and noninvasive surgical methods.
Dr. Peters has extensive experience with treatment of pediatric urologic problems, developing minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robot-assisted procedures, and has conducted NIH-funded research in urinary obstruction, vesicoureteral reflux, and bladder dysfunction. As part of Children's Surgical Innovation, Technology, and Translation team, he will continue his specialization in infants, children, and adolescents needing surgery from illnesses of the genitourinary tract, encompassing all of the congenital and acquired urinary tract abnormalities of infancy and childhood of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and male and female genitalia. Prior to joining Children's, Dr. Peters was chief of the Division of Pediatric Urology at the University of Virginia. Dr. Peters completed his medical education at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, and completed pediatric urology/surgical fellowships at Children's Hospital Boston through Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.

"I find that with the three-dimensional imaging I can visualize more effectively, and perform more precise and complex reconstructive surgery inside the abdomen," says Peters.
"Although operative times have increased with the use of the robot compared to traditional open pyeloplasty, we are getting closer to open surgical times, and hospital stays have decreased from three days to one," says Peters. The robotic surgery also reduces blood loss, postoperative pain and allows for a quicker recovery from surgery.
While success rates of open and robotic assisted pyeloplasty are similar, robotic surgery has not been performed as long as the open procedure. Further analysis is needed to determine if the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, including cost and longer operative times. "I think robotic surgery is the way to go," says Peters.

Children's National Medical Center has appointed Craig Peters, MD, chief of Surgical Technology and Translation and Principal Investigator in the bioengineering initiative at the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation. His research will focus on customized surgical planning and evaluation, enhanced visualization during surgery, and minimal and noninvasive surgical methods. Dr. Peters will also be part of the Division of Urology, where he will treat infants, children, and adolescents with urological disorders.
"Robotic surgery has been my passion for the last eight or nine years of my work in minimally invasive surgery in urology," Dr. Peters said. "The potential exists for robotic technology to improve surgery for children through better visualization, manipulation of tissues, and access to small areas. The Sheikh Zayed Institute provides unparalleled opportunities and resources to lead a paradigm shift in surgery toward greater precision and better outcomes."
"Dr. Peters is an important part of our growing team of surgeons, researchers, and engineers that is coming together to transform children's surgery," said Dr. Kurt Newman, senior vice president for the Joseph E. Robert, Jr., Center for Surgical Care and the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation.

This research, conducted by Sheikh Zayed Institute principal investigator Craig Peters, MD, with a team at the University of Virginia, provides an early indication that this relatively novel approach poses no additional risks to children than traditional methods, while offering the benefits of minimally invasive surgery-reduced recovery time and less pain-that have been well-documented in the adult population.
"The use of robotics in children is a new and exciting field," said Dr. Peters, who is chief of Surgical Innovation, Technology and Translation in the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation and the Joseph E. Robert, Jr., Center for Surgical Care, and a pediatric urologist.
...
Current robotic technology is applied for children mainly in the area of urological surgical procedures, and Dr. Peters' bioengineering research explores the possibilities of expanding robotic surgery in children to more applications.
