COLUMBUS, Ohio & NASHVILLE, Tenn., October 19, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Industry pioneer U.S. Urology Partners has created a Robotic Surgery Institute at Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center to advance the use of robotics technology in the field of urology. The new Institute was recently the site of one of the first robotic prostatectomies in the nation to be performed at an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) and the first in Central Ohio. There are less than five ASCs in the country currently offering robotic urologic surgeries like prostatectomy. The prostate cancer patient was able to go home the same day as the robotic surgery.
U.S. Urology Partners is one of the country’s largest independent providers of urology and related specialty services and is backed by NMS Capital. Through Central Ohio Urology Group and Associated Medical Professionals of NY, U.S. Urology Partners consists of a network of 24 offices throughout Ohio and Upstate New York.
Mark Cherney, Executive Chairman and CEO of U.S. Urology Partners, stated, "We are honored to report this groundbreaking advance in the field of outpatient robotic surgery and congratulate Dr. Ronney Abaza and the clinical team. We have invested in the most advanced technology available today for the Robotic Surgery Institute at Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center to ensure that we can meet the needs of patients throughout the region and the nation."
Ronney Abaza, M.D., F.A.C.S., one of the most experienced robotic surgeons in the world and a physician at Central Ohio Urology Group, performed the surgery. Dr. Abaza said, "Allowing our patients to have their cancer surgery at an outpatient surgery center and then go home the same day removes most of the anxiety these patients feel, particularly now during the COVID crisis. Since our cancer patients can't afford to delay their surgery until COVID dies down, we are pleased to now allow them to have their surgery at the Robotic Surgery Institute at Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center, and they are able to go home the same day and recover in the comfort and safety of their own homes."
The expert team of robotic surgeons at the Robotic Surgery Institute at Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center has collectively performed over 10,000 robotic surgeries and includes Ronney Abaza, M.D.; John K. Burgers, M.D.; Benjamin J. Martin, M.D.; Rashmi "Rush" I. Patel, M.D.; and E. Bradley Pewitt, M.D., Ph.D.
The Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center is pleased to offer patients the benefits of outpatient robotic surgery for robotic procedures that include, but are not limited to: prostatectomy, nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, adrenalectomy, pyeloplasty/ureteral reconstruction and sacrocolpopexy.
The facility is located at 701 Tech Center Drive in Gahanna, Ohio, and is less than five minutes from the Columbus Airport with shuttle service and accommodations available for out-of-town patients traveling for robotic surgery.
With a clinical network of 15 offices, Central Ohio Urology Group is the region’s leading provider of comprehensive urological services, including general urology, men’s health, women’s health, cancer care, advanced cancer treatment and radiation oncology.
