It's not that they don't see the big picture. But, when it comes to bladder prolapse, incontinence, interstitial cystitis, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie's disease and cancers of the bladder, kidney, prostate and testicles, they offer some of the best treatments anywhere.
But the incisions they make are remarkably small. Using laparoscopic renal cryosurgery - a minimally invasive technique that freezes and kills kidney cancer cells - is one way BWMC urologists treat renal cell carcinoma, the most common form of kidney cancer.
In the past, surgeons often treated kidney cancer by removing all or part of the kidney through an open procedure. The new laparoscopic procedure requires only a small incision, and the typical surgery complications are minimized. The procedure allows most patients to return home the following day.
