State-of-the-art treatments close to home.

The WVU Cancer Institute’s Department of Urology offers comprehensive cancer care for all urologic cancers. A multidisciplinary urologic oncology clinic meets weekly. This clinic allows patients to be seen by experts in Urology, Oncology, and Radiation Oncology usually on the same day. Weekly Tumor Board meetings with faculty and staff allow for individualized discussion and consultation. Our treatment of urologic cancers utilizes all standard modalities, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, as needed. We offer open surgery, endoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery to maximize the best outcome for each patient.

We offer minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery, the most advanced option for surgery related to the urogenital tract.

The da Vinci® robotic arms, guided by the surgeon’s hands, allow our doctors to perform major urologic surgery through tiny incisions with pinpoint accuracy. The robotic instruments are manipulated through small incisions into deep tissue areas of the body with less disruption to surrounding healthy tissue and with less blood loss than traditional open surgery.

Our urology doctors use robotic-assisted surgery to treat diseases of the urinary tract and the accessory organs, including:

  • Robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer
  • Robotic cystectomy for bladder cancer
  • Robotic nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy for kidney cancer
  • Robotic adrenalectomy for adrenal gland disorders and cancer
