Craig Peters, MD, a urologic surgeon at Children's and associate professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School will perform the surgery.
"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 out weigh the disadvantages, including cost and longer operative times."I think robotic surgery is the way to go," says Peters.
