Tulane Department of Urology is the first and most experienced in the gulf south in robotic procedures for kidney cancer. Tulane Urology has as long history of being the regional and national leaders in providing minimally invasive surgical procedures for various urologic maladies. From Nephroscopy to Ureteroscopy to Laparoscopy to Laser Surgery, Tulane Urology has been (in most instances) the first and the most experienced in such minimally invasive procedures in the entire Gulf South.
This same spirit of innovation and experience brought the daVinci™robot to Tulane University Hospital in November 2002 as the first center in the entire Gulf South to provide this cutting edge technology. The Tulane Urology team with its vast experience in Robotic and Laparoscopic urologic surgery brings this experience to maintain your quality of life.
Tulane Urology using 3D printing technology to improve patient & clinician understanding of procedures
