Minimally invasive surgery (laprascopy and robotic)

Minimally invasive surgery is the standard of care for treatment of most intra-abdominal pediatric urological conditions. At Covenant Children's, in addition to offering laparoscopic surgery, we utilize a DaVinci Robot to perform minimally invasive surgeries.

Minimally invasive surgery has a host of benefits, including:

  • Reduction in postoperative pain
  • Decrease in length of hospitalization
  • Shortened recovery time
  • Improved scar appearance
