At The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA), our board-certified and subspecialty trained kidney, bladder and urinary specialists provide compassionate care from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up.
Our urologists (male and female urinary tract and male reproductive system specialists) and nephrologists (kidney disease, kidney transplantation and dialysis specialists) emphasize minimally invasive procedures, including laparoscopic and robotic surgery, that reduces pain and blood loss, as well as results in faster recovery times.
Conditions we treat
Our kidney, bladder and urinary tract specialists can help diagnose and treat the following conditions:
Minimally invasive urological surgery
Our kidney, bladder and urinary program features the state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotic operating system. Specially trained surgeons use robotic components and special operating tools to enhance their surgical precision, while minimizing incisions, blood loss and pain. Most importantly, patients undergoing robotic surgery experience faster recovery times. Our specialists perform the following robotic procedures:
- Prostatectomy (removal of all or part of the prostate)
- Nephrectomy (removal of all or part of the kidney)
- Pyeloplasty (reconstruction of the renal pelvis in order to help drain and decompress the kidney)
For benign or non-cancerous prostate disease (also called enlarged prostate), we offer advanced microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) and laser therapy (TURP). Both procedures reduce symptoms, help preserve sexual function, are less invasive and can be performed in your physician’s office.
In addition, our team is trained to perform the following cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures:
- Endourologic procedures for urologic cancer—using special tools, doctors can remove cancerous tissue without creating an incision, using natural entry points into this area of the body (i.e. urethra, bladder and ureter).
- Cryosurgery for prostate cancer—as an alternative to surgical removal of tumors, doctors can freeze and kill abnormal cells using small probes.
