Why is outpatient robotic surgery beneficial? 

Convenience, cost and safety.

Because robotic surgery is minimally invasive, most patients do not need to be in a hospital and can recover in the comfort of their own homes with their family nearby rather than staying overnight in a hospital.

When a surgery can be performed at an outpatient surgery center, it is much more convenient for patients and can be much less costly for them as well. For some patients, the hospital can also have risks that are avoided at outpatient surgery centers like exposure to sicker patients and infections.

We are pleased to offer our patients the benefits of outpatient robotic surgery for robotic procedures that include, but are not limited to: 

Prostatectomy

Partial or complete removal of the prostate

It may be performed to treat prostate cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Nephrectomy

Removal of a kidney

It is performed most often for kidney cancer but can also be for other conditions like chronic infection.

Partial Nephrectomy

Removal of part of the kidney

Usually performed because of a tumor while saving the normal portion of the kidney.

Adrenalectomy

Removal of an adrenal gland

It is usually for patients with a tumor in the adrenal gland or overproduction of hormones.

Pyeloplasty/Ureteral Reconstruction

Reconstruction of a narrowing or scarring in the drainage system of the kidney

After removing the blockage, the urinary tract is then reconstructed to allow the kidney to drain normally and preserve its function.

Sacrocolpopexy

Used to treat pelvic organ prolapse in women

Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition that is caused by a weakening of the normal support of the pelvic floor with aging or after a hysterectomy and can lead to incontinence and/or an abnormal bulge in the vagina.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of anesthesia is used at Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center?

We use general anesthesia so you will be completely asleep during the entire surgery. Your anesthesia will be controlled the entire time by an anesthesia doctor and not an assistant or anesthesia nurse. Also, there are no students or other learners at the center.

How do you handle complications during surgery?

Our experienced team of surgeons has performed thousands of robotic surgeries and is prepared for any potential complications that could occur during your surgery. Our anesthesiologists provide services at local hospitals and can handle any anesthesia-related issues. In the exceedingly rare event of an unexpected or unusual complication, we can transport you to a local hospital which is only 2.5 miles away, but this occurs much less than 1% of the time.

What if I can’t go home the same day as my surgery?

Almost all patients will be comfortable going home after robotic surgery because it is minimally invasive and done with only a few small incisions. In the rare event that you would not able to go home due to anesthesia-related issues or for other unforeseen medical reasons, we will keep you overnight at our partner skilled-nursing facility located adjacent to our surgery center.

Who will be taking care of me at the Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center?

In addition to your surgeon, who will consult with you prior to your surgery, you will have an anesthesiologist providing your general anesthesia and a team of nurses and surgical assistants. Our surgeons have performed thousands of robotic surgeries, and we have recruited an outstanding care team who focus solely on urology and robotic surgery.
