Connecticut Children’s uses endoscopy, laparoscopic surgery, and state-of-the-art robotic surgery to treat a range of common and complex urologic conditions affecting children. Minimally invasive surgical techniques and technology allow many procedures to be performed with patients experiencing less pain, smaller scars and a faster recovery time.
Connecticut Children’s was the first hospital in Connecticut to perform robotic surgery on a child. The da Vinci Xi System, the most advanced robotic surgical technology available, gives our pediatric urology surgeons the distinct advantage of 3D imagery allowing for greater precision and range of motion inside a pediatric patient as compared to laparoscopic surgery.
