About Dr. Yurkanin Minimally Invasive Surgery


Arizona Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery

Minimally invasive urologic surgery utilizes modern technology for the treatment of diseases affecting the genitourinary system.  These include congenital problems such as ureteral obstructions and acquired disorders such as cancer and urinary tract stones.

The first goal of any treatment is to provide the highest quality of care and yield the best chance for curing a disorder.  In essence the disease must be treated appropriately and without sacrificing patient outcome or safety.  Secondarily, when possible, the disease is treated with the least amount of invasiveness.  Robotic laparoscopic and endoscopic surgical procedures utilize small surgical incisions or natural pathways in the human body to complete complex and delicate operations.  Furthermore, fiber-optic technology and varying degrees of magnification are also used to increase accuracy and visualization during the procedures.

Minimally invasive surgery has resulted in excellent treatment outcomes when compared to older and more traditional surgery.  Additionally, minimally invasive surgery is associated with less procedure-related pain, a shorter hospital stay, and an earlier return to normal activity.
