Urology at Group Health Medical Centers
Robots and physicians both are part of the Group Health urology team, which treats diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract.
Our urologists began using robotic laparoscopic surgery in 2004. "It allows us to do more complex procedures with less invasive techniques, so patients experience significantly less pain and blood loss," says urologist Dr. Cristopher Garlitz.
And our physicians provide a wide array of materials and videos to help our patients be part of informed decisions and treatments.
Our Urology Department treats kidney, bladder, prostate, adrenal, and testicular conditions and diseases, including cancer, kidney stones, infections, prostate concerns, incontinence, warts, and overactive bladders. Our experienced team of board-certified urologists include those who have been named Top Doctors for several years.
