Pediatric Urological Surgery: Update on Robotics and Other Advanced Options

With footage from his team’s minimally invasive surgeries, Laurence S. Baskin, MD, UCSF’s chief of pediatric urology, describes the latest approaches to conditions ranging from undescended testicles to blocked ureters and ureteral polyps. With a better understanding of these procedures and their advantages (such as less scarring and recovery time), referring pediatricians can answer parents’ questions and help them know what to expect. Bonus: Find out whether imaging is worthwhile for an undescended testicle.
