Kidney Cancer Treatment
Laparoscopic kidney removal: Laparoscopic nephrectomy provides patients with a safe and effective way to remove a diseased or cancerous kidney. Laparoscopic nephrectomy is a minimally invasive technique, which provides patients with less discomfort and equivalent results when compared to the larger incision required with traditional open surgery.
Partial nephrectomy: Kidney-preserving surgery for kidney cancer.
Cryotherapy: Our urologists have a high success and low complication rate using cryotherapy to treat small kidney tumors. This minimally invasive technique freezes the tumor to destroy the cancer cells. Advantages over radical surgery include preservation of kidney function and shorter recovery; if cryotherapy is not successful, renal surgery can be a next option.
Bladder cancer treatment
Pelvic reconstruction (pelvic organ prolapse): We’re proud to have on staff a board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeon with extensive experience treating pelvic organ prolapse using including minimally invasive surgical techniques.
In pelvic organ prolapse, the vagina and the organs that surround and support it fall from their normal position. Danbury Hospital gynecologists, urogynecologists and reconstructive surgery specialists work closely together to evaluate and treat the different types of pelvic organ prolapse.
Urinary incontinence: Stress incontinence, which is more common in women, causes urine to leak when you laugh or cough. Overactive bladder, also called urge incontinence, is caused by urinary muscle spasms that cause an urgency to urinate. Incontinence can also be caused by multiple pregnancies, being overweight and genetic weaknesses.
