Urology - Expertise

  • Robotic Surgery Robotic-assisted surgery, a type of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), uses surgical robotic equipment, which imitates surgical movements. MIS procedures allow surgeons to operate through small ports rather than large incisions, resulting in shorter recovery times, fewer complications and reduced hospital stays. Surgical robotics combines minimally advanced surgery with highly advanced clinical technology. The first Robotic urological procedure in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was performed here in King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre.
  • Laparoscopy There has been a marked increase in the utilization of laparoscopy to treat urological disease, in particular renal cell carcinoma surgery in addition to reconstructive laparoscopic procedures such as laparoscopic pyeloplasty. The first laparoscopic radical cystoprostatectomy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was performed at King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre.
