David Robbins, MD is director of robotic surgery at Urological Consultants of Florida, a premiere urological program serving patients in the greater Miami region and around the world for greater than 30 years. Dr. Robbins has extensive experience with da Vinci robotic surgery and performs robotic pyeloplasty for UPJ obstruction on a regular basis. Using the magnified 3D vision provided by the da Vinci robotic surgical system, Dr. Robbins is able to perform pyeloplasty surgery surgery to correct UPJ obstruction through only 4 small key sized incisions. Patients benefit from this minimally invasive approach via decreased length of hospital stay, decreased pain and decreased blood loss compared to conventional open or even laparoscopic surgery.
"In late 2011 Dr. Robbins found an obstruction with my left kidney. I had a robotic pyeloplasty procedure in November of that year which included removing several kidney stones, reducing inflammation and getting the kidney working properly. On January of 2012 I was back to 100% and was able to run the ING Half Marathon. This year I completed my second half marathon and plan to run the full next year."
