Minimally Invasive Urology Services

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 :

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.
