Cleveland Clinic was the first U.S. medical center to begin using the single-port (SP) robot for urologic procedures in late 2018. Since then, urologists have continued to fine-tune their surgical technique.
A team of urologists at Cleveland Clinic is the first to report their experience and the early outcomes of a transvesical radical prostatectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection using the single-port (SP) robot system.
In the Biomedical Engineering Department, Dr. Jihad Kaouk and five engineers are working on robotic automation.
AUA will host a virtual experience on June 27-28 with a full line-up of keynote lectures, clinical guidelines, semi-live surgeries and late-breaking science. Be sure to check out four cant-miss sessions featuring five Cleveland Clinic urologists.

Urologic surgeons last week completed a radical prostatectomy using new generation of robot that is designed for single-incision robotic surgery.
Indications for robotic partial nephrectomy are expanding to include more complex renal masses. Watch this video for an example: achieving local cancer control with transperitoneal robotic surgery for T3 tumor invading the sinus fat.
Transvesical robotic partial prostatectomy proves feasible with a novel purpose-built single port surgical platform used in a preclinical model.
This short video outlines how combining minimally invasive robotic pyelolithotomy and partial nephrectomy successfully treated a 53-year-old man’s concurrent renal calculus and ipsilateral neoplasm.
Robotic-assisted radical perineal prostatectomy avoids the intra-abdominal cavity and has been shown to be oncologically safe, with excellent functional outcomes and a short hospital stay.
Jihad Kaouk, MD, Director, Center for Robotic & Image-Guided Surgery, demonstrates a novel approach to cooling the kidney during partial nephrectomy, duplicating advantages offered by open surgery.
