Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, according to the American Cancer Society. Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston-Willis offers a variety of services and treatments to help you navigate your diagnosis.

Urogynecology

Urogynecologists are gynecologists who specialize in treating women with pelvic floor and urinary disorders, such as pelvic organ prolapse.

Pelvic organ prolapse, also called pelvic floor prolapse, occurs when the pelvic floor muscles become weakened and no longer properly support the pelvic organs (the vagina, bladder, uterus, small bowel and rectum). Pelvic organ prolapse is most often caused by pregnancy and childbirth, but other triggers, such as repeated heavy lifting, chronic constipation, pelvic surgery and menopause can be involved.

Urinary and pelvic disorders are common in women, and experience treating these conditions is essential to restoring your quality of life. Our urogynecologists are highly trained in treating these disorders with positive outcomes.

Advanced urologic treatment with robotic surgery

We use the most effective, least invasive treatment options available when possible. In fact, we treat many urological and urogynecological conditions using robotic surgery.

Robotic technology is ideal for performing procedures in and around delicate, hard-to-reach areas of the body, such as the areas in the urinary system. Requiring only tiny incisions, robotic surgery spares surrounding nerves, muscles and tissues, resulting in less blood loss and scarring than traditional surgery.

This minimally invasive approach to surgery reduces the physical and emotional impact of surgery, ultimately leading to a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery time.
