New Robotic Surgical Procedure: Robotic Bladder Diverticulectomy

Today, Dr. Marc Greenstein and I performed the first robotic diverticulectomy at our hospital, and likely among one of the first on the country.
This procedure was done for recurrent bladder infections, but can also be done for bladder cancer.
The operation went extremely well and much better than the typical open version of the operation. Our robotic time was under 1 hour and there was almost no blood loss, and should cut the patient’s hospital stay from 4-5 days to overnight. The expected pain and bladder discomfort should be much less as well.
I will need to update my website and add some video when I get the chance, as well as submit a paper for publishing.
