da Vinci® Surgery

for Urinary Obstruction (Pyeloplasty)

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat urinary obstruction, you may be a candidate for a new, minimally invasive approach - da Vinci® Surgery for Urinary Obstruction.


 This surgery, known as pyeloplasty, removes the blockage in the urinary system. During surgery, your doctor will reattach the healthy part of the kidney to the healthy part of the ureter – the narrow tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder.

da Vinci Surgery uses state-of-the-art technology to help your doctor perform a more precise operation than conventional surgery. It offers several potential benefits over a conventional open surgery, including:


  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer transfusions
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Better clinical outcomes, in many cases

da Vinci Surgery incorporates the best techniques of open surgery and applies them to a robotic-assisted, minimally invasive approach.


The precision and dexterity of the da Vinci Surgical System allows for a minimally invasive approach in treating urinary obstructions. As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is unique to each patient and procedure. If you are a candidate for a pyeloplasty, talk to a urologist who performs da Vinci surgery for urinary obstructions.


While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
