hypospadias, in which the opening of the urethra develops abnormally
the use in Texas of radiofrequency ablation to treat kidney tumors
North Texas’ first botulinum
toxin injection for neurogenic bladder dysfunction in men and women
the first laparoscopic prostatectomy in North Texas
among the first in the world to offer continent urinary diversion for
patients with bladder cancer
the first to perform an innovative therapy for complex female genital
- Were the first in North
Texas to use the dual-console da Vinci Surgical System, enabling us to perform
minimally invasive surgeries with even greater precision

UT Southwestern offers treatments for some of the most complex urologic conditions, including specialized care for men, women, and children.
Our physicians have the most experience in North Texas with laparoscopic surgery for kidney, prostate, and testicular cancer and offer robotic surgery for prostate cancer and other urological conditions. Robotic surgery is the newest development in the area of minimally invasive treatments, and our surgeons perform robotic procedures in our state-of-the art facility at Zale Lipshy University Hospital.
Robotic and minimally invasive surgeries have benefits
that include a reduction in postoperative pain, shorter recovery time,
minimized hospital stay, and less overall impact on a patient’s life. UT
Southwestern is home to some of the most respected minimally invasive surgeons
in the world. Our physicians provide world leadership for minimally invasive
kidney tumor ablation and have the most experience in laparoscopic urologic
cancer surgery in North Texas.
