Robotic Pyeloplasty

Pyeloplasty is a kidney surgery to reconstruct a damaged ureter and renal pelvis. For adults the renal pelvis of the kidney and the ureters that lead down to the bladder becomes susceptible to being deformed when urine is built up in the urinary system, due to something blocking the urine and forcing it back up into the kidney(s).

Urine normally drains from the kidney into a tube that carries the urine down to the bladder called the ureter. This area of drainage is referred to as the ureteropelvic junction (UPJ).

Robotic Pyeloplasty gives comparable results to the open version and is performed through 4 incisions that are only 1/2 inch or less. The high resolution magnification allows an extremely precise repair.


Robotic technology has stimulated a new era in urologic surgery. The daVinci robot provides magnified three-dimensional vision and a miniature robotic articulating wrist that allows precise dissection and laparoscopic suturing. Robotic pyeloplasty is an excellent technique with very good results. Blood loss and pain are minimal, allowing early discharge home and quick recovery.
