Minimally Invasive Surgery (Laprascopy and Robotic)

Minimally invasive surgery is the standard of care for treatment of most intra-abdominal pediatric urological conditions. At Covenant Children's, in addition to offering laparoscopic surgery, we host a DaVinci Robot that our urologists can use to perform minimally invasive surgeries.

Minimally invasive surgery has a host of benefits such as reduction in postoperative pain, decrease in the duration of hospitalization, shortened recovery time, and improvement in the appearance of scars.‚Äč

In addition to minimally invasive surgery, our pediatric urology patients are supported by a team of Certified Child Life Specialists who provide evidence-based, developmentally and psychologically appropriate interventions including therapeutic play, preparation for procedures, and education to reduce fear, anxiety, and pain.
