Pyeloplasty Surgery Miami

Pyeloplasty surgery is performed to repair a narrowing or stricture at the junction between the kidney and the ureter known as the uretero-pelvic junction or UPJ.  A crossing vessel or stricture at the UPJ causes progressive dilatation of the renal pelvis subsequently leading to swelling (hydronephrosis) and worsening renal function or renal failure.

Miami urologist, David Robbins MD is a board certified urologist and recognized leader in da Vinci robotic surgery and expert in robotic pyeloplasty surgery for both stricture disease and crossing vessel at the UPJ (UPJ obstruction).  Dr. Robbins trained at New York University and learned to perform robotic pyeloplasty procedures from Dr. Michael Stifelman, internationally acclaimed leader in the field of robotic surgery for the kidney and ureter.

Pyeloplasty procedures using the robotic approach are a minimally invasive option for pyeloplasty performed though four keyhole sized incisions as opposed to a long painful  flank incision traditionally used for this surgery.  Robotic pyeloplasty procedures are associated with decreased blood loss, less pain and a shorter hospital stay.  Miami urologist David Robbins, MD is currently performing robotic pyeloplasty surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach as well as Aventura Hospital and Medical Center in Aventura.
