Pediatric Robotic Surgery


Dr. Craig Peters, a pediatric urologist and internationally known robotic and minimally invasive surgery expert, talks about how robotic assisted surgery can be applied to pediatric urology for common conditions including pyeloplasty for obstruction and ureteral reimplantation for vesicoureteral reflux.
