LAPAROSCOPIC AND ROBOTIC SURGERYDr. Byrne is well-trained in the techniques of both laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgery.  If you have been diagnosed with a condition of the bladder, kidney, or prostate, minimally invasive surgery may be an option.

Robotic and laparoscopic surgery is performed through small incisions. Minimally invasive surgery allows less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stay, and quicker overall recovery and return to work and regular activities.
