Minimally Invasive Urology Services
Safety is our top priority.
We want to assure you that we are here for you. While the coronavirus has changed much of our daily lives, one thing that has remained constant is our commitment to providing you with the best, safest care possible.
Here at the Minimally Invasive Urology Institute, your safety is our top priority. As national leaders and experts in urologic care, we also know that preventative care, completing a treatment plan and routine follow up is associated with the best outcomes for patients. That is why we worked closely with the RI Department of Health and our infection prevention and infectious diseases teams to be able to provide the care you need in a safe environment.
Nationally-Ranked Urologic Care, Specialized for Each Patient
The Minimally Invasive Urology Institute (MIUI) at The Miriam Hospital offers specialized urologic care through a variety of treatment options including minimally invasive laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures.
Minimally invasive procedures use advanced technology to reduce damage to surrounding tissue while performing surgery.
This type of surgery is performed through small keyhole incisions, with a miniature camera that magnifies the image on a video monitor in the operating room.
This state-of-the-art technology expands the surgeon’s visibility and provides a range of motion that is superior to the range of motion in the human wrist.
The conditions we treat include :
- Prostate cancer
- Bladder and ureter cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Kidney stones
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
- Adrenal mass
- Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction
Comprehensive, Multidisciplinary Care
The institute’s medical teams provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary care. As appropriate, teams may include urologists, surgeons, internal medicine physicians, nephrologists, oncologists, anesthesiologists, nurses, physical therapists, dietitians, geriatricians, and social workers.
All of our staff members are specially trained in urology and take a collaborative approach to ensure that each patient receives the highest level of care.
