The treatment for Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction (UPJ treatment) is surgery to remove the blockage and restore urine flow. At Advanced Urology, we perform minimally invasive, robotic pyeloplasty to repair UPJ obstructions.
Robot-Assisted, Minimally Invasive Pyeloplasty
Pyeloplasty refers to a surgery performed to remove obstruction and reattach the ureter to the kidney at the renal pelvis. At Advanced Urology, we perform this procedure laparoscopically (or minimally invasive), accessing the affected ureter through a small incision in the abdomen.
Benefits of performing this procedure robotically (over a traditional or open pyeloplasty) may include:
Less blood loss
Shorter hospital stay
Faster recovery time
Lower risk of infection
Not all patients are candidates for robotic surgery. Please talk to your doctor.
