It’s a New Day. Setting the Standard in Minimally Invasive Surgery.
Urology Center of Iowa is home to the state’s most experienced urologic robotic surgeons.
The da Vinci Robotic System
Dr. Mark Kellerman (pictured) completed the first urologic surgery in Des Moines using the da Vinci system at Iowa Methodist Hospital in 2004 with the assistance of Dr. Richard Glowacki. Combined, they have performed more than 1,000 robotic surgeries since 2004. In addition, our other urologists also have extensive experience in using the da Vinci system to treat a number of urologic conditions.
Robotic surgery is a form of laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery that utilizes a robot (da Vinci system) to assist the surgeon in completing a procedure.
Compared to traditional open surgery, robotic surgery offers a number of benefits:
The conditions our urologist treat using the da Vinci robotic system include cancer (oncology) as well as reconstructive surgery.
