Robotic Urologic Surgery in Ventura County

da Vinci® Procedures

Community Memorial had the first hospital in our region to acquire the da Vinci robot. Nearly two decades later, our surgeons’ expertise in robotic surgery is undeniable. In addition to their proven mastery at the operations listed below, our surgeons are committed to building on their expertise with new technologies and procedures,

Urologic Procedures

  • Nephrectomy & Partial Nephrectomy: The total or partial removal of a kidney. This is most often done to treat cancer or remove a noncancerous tumor.
  • Pyeloplasty: This procedure is performed to relieve UPJ obstruction, a condition in which a blockage occurs at the junction where the kidney meets the ureter, the tube that carries urine to the bladder.
  • Adrenalectomy: The adrenal glands, which sit atop each kidney, produce male and female sex hormones as well as hormones that help control blood pressure and blood sugar, and spark the fight or flight response. An adrenalectomy is performed to remove a cancerous adrenal gland or a benign tumor that is disrupting normal hormone production.

Gynecologic Procedures

  • Endometriosis: Surgery to remove abnormal endometriosis tissue growing outside of its normal location inside the uterus, as well as any scarring from past endometriosis flareups.
  • Hysterectomy: Surgery to remove the uterus in women with large fibroids, pelvic pain, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine prolapse, chronic pelvic pain, or uterine cancer.
  • Myomectomy: Surgery to remove common uterine growths called fibroids.
  • Oophorectomy: Also called ovariotomy, this procedure is the removal of one or both ovaries.
  • Ovarian Sparing Cystectomy: A delicate procedure to remove an ovarian cyst without removing the ovary. This can only be accomplished in certain cases.

Prostate Procedure

  • Radical Prostatectomy: Surgical removal of the prostate, usually due to cancer.
