Featured Story from Urology Newsletter

Pediatric Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery

Travis W. Groth, MD, Assistant Professor, Pediatric Urology

Laparoscopic surgery has been used in pediatric surgery since the 1970’s. However, these procedures were solely used for diagnostic purposes. The first laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed in 1985, and the first laparoscopic nephrectomy was performed in 1990. These procedures demonstrated the feasibility of laparoscopic surgery, along with the great promise it held to decrease patients’ morbidity of certain operations. In a short period of time, laparoscopic surgery, also referred to as minimally invasive surgery, has become the standard of care for the treatment for various surgical conditions in pediatric and adult patients. This has been made possible because of advancements in technology of endoscopic optics and miniaturization of instruments.
