Advocate Christ Medical Center offers patients with urologic issues the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment modalities available today. From erectile dysfunction to prostate conditions, our urologists are highly skilled and provide comprehensive, compassionate care to each patient.
Minimally Invasive Urology
We offer the latest minimally invasive treatment options, and our urologists are fellowship-trained in laparoscopic surgery and have extensive experience performing partial and radical nephrectomies, as well as ablated therapies, including radiofrequency ablation and laparoscopic cyroablation.
Our physicians are experts in implanting the InterStim® neurostimulator to treat bladder control problems, where a pacemaker-like device is connected to the sacral nerve to modulate bladder stimulation. This outpatient procedure has proven to be highly effective in treating the worst urge incontinence, with patients experiencing significant improvements.
Robotic Urologic Surgery
The da Vinci® Robotic Surgery System has revolutionized urologic surgery, making it possible for urologists to perform complicated surgeries with greater access, improved sight and enhanced equipment. By giving surgeons better access to internal structures, urologists can perform prostatectamies without the risk of erectile dysfunction and incontinence. It also reduces blood loss during surgery, almost eliminating the need for transfusions during the procedure.
