Raising the Bar in Urology Surgery
Geisinger Holy Spirit provides patients with breakthrough urology care. In 2013-2014, our urology department was honored by U.S. News and World Report for high performance.
Innovative Urology Treatment Options
Patients at Geisinger Holy Spirit have many options for treatment of urologic conditions, such as kidney, bladder and prostate cancer.
For prostate cancer, we offer leading-edge techniques like the da Vinci® Prostatectomy, which is the number one choice of surgeons for treatment of localized prostate cancer.
Surgeons use the precision, vision and control provided by the da Vinci® surgery robot to assist them in removing the cancerous prostate with minimal blood loss, while preserving important nerve fibers and blood vessels. For most patients, this means less pain, reduced recovery time, a shorter hospital stay and retention of bladder control and erectile function.
The da Vinci® Si System is also an ideal surgical platform for performing laparoscopic procedures in the kidneys. These include:
- Treatment of kidney obstructions
- Removal of small tumors (partial nephrectomy)
- Complete removal of the kidney (nephrectomy)
Talk to your doctor to determine if you are a candidate for da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery.
