Trained surgeons in the Division of Pediatric Urology use robotic technology to complete minimally invasive surgical procedures with greater precision and control.

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System is designed to improve patient safety, save costs and allow robotic surgery to be performed on smaller patients, including infants.

Paul Noh, director of minimally invasive surgery in the Division of Pediatric Urology, is certified by Intuitive Surgical as a surgical proctor for robotic-assisted surgery. Noh, along with Pramod P. Reddy and W. Robert DeFoor, make up the robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgical team.
