Minimally Invasive Urology Institute

Delivering Excellence in Urologic Patient Care, Education & Research

The Minimally Invasive Urology Institute (MIUI) at The Miriam Hospital offers  a variety of treatment options including minimally invasive laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures. 

Minimally invasive procedures use advanced technology to reduce damage to surrounding tissue while performing surgery. This type of surgery is performed through small keyhole incisions, with a miniature camera that magnifies the image on a video monitor in the operating room. This state-of-the-art technology expands the surgeon’s visibility and provides a range of motion that is superior to the range of motion in the human wrist.
