Vantage Urologic Institute


Minimally Invasive Surgery

The Vantage Urologic Institute is a regional leader in minimally invasive surgery.  Through countless advances in technology, it is feasible to perform many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures using minimally invasive techniques. The patient experiences the same benefits of open surgery, however, the need for pain medication is significantly diminished and the time to recovery and return to normal activities is significantly shorter.

Our highly skilled and experience minimally invasive surgery team specializes in surgical procedures that are both the most effective and least invasive to treat a wide range of conditions – urologic cancers, benign prostate enlargement, bladder disorders, women's urologic problems and urinary stone disease.

Benefits of a Minimally Invasive Approach

Minimally invasive procedures are an excellent choice for most patients with urologic disorders that require surgery.  With all minimally invasive procedures, patients benefit in several ways:

  • Shortened hospital stay

  • Smaller incisions and less scarring

  • Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion

  • Less pain

  • Fewer complications
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities

Equally important, cumulative experiences from multiple centers, including the Vantage Urologic Institute, show that clinical outcomes are equal to those of patients who undergo traditional surgery – or in some cases even better.
