When your child needs surgery to correct a complex urological condition, you can count on the expert hands of the surgeons at Cincinnati Children’s – including the robotic ones.
In August 2014, Cincinnati Children’s became the first pediatric hospital in the world to perform an operation using the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, the latest advance in robot-assisted surgery. Paul Noh, MD, used the device to help a teenaged boy who had suffered a blockage in his ureter – the tube that carries urine between the kidney and the bladder. Unlike traditional forms of the procedure, the patient required no narcotics for pain and was discharged less than 24 hours after the robot-assisted, minimally invasive operation.
Our use of new technology to reduce blood loss, limit pain and speed recovery time is just one reason why our urology program is ranked No. 5 in the country in the 2015-16 list of Best Children’s Hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report. More than 9,500 children visited Cincinnati Children’s in the past year to get help for bedwetting, hernias, kidney stones, cancers of the genitourinary tract and other rare conditions.
“We provide a one-stop shop for a wide range of urological conditions,” says Pramod Reddy, MD, director of Pediatric Urology. “We focus on what’s going on with the whole child, not just a single condition. Our superb nursing staff also does a phenomenal job of helping make the entire patient and family experience a positive one.”
