Robotic Surgery Now Available!
Cedar Valley Medical Specialists (CVMS) Department of Urology is leading the way in advanced urological robotic surgery.
CVMS is pleased to announce that the first urological surgery performed at CVMS was done by Dr. Lee using the da Vinici Robot. Dr. Lee was able to perform a robotic partial nephrectomy or partial removal of the kidney using this state-of-the-art surgery robot.
The CVMS Department of Urology is a comprehensive urology clinic that provides residents a new option here at home. For more than a decade, if you had prostate cancer, your only choice was to have treatment outside the area. Not anymore.
Dr. Lee is the most recent addition to the newly formed Cedar Valley Institute for Robotic Surgery. This new division of CVMS was conceived and pioneered by Dr. Gesme. Along with physician, Dr. Bill Kaaki, the first surgeon in the area to perform a gynecological surgery under this new organization, these surgeons are ushering in a new era of care for Cedar Valley residents.
In 2015, Drs. Askeland and Newton will be joining the ranks and will expand the urological service offered in the area.
Cedar Valley Medical Specialists along with Drs. Lee, Kaaki and Gesme provide world class care right here at home. Now you don’t have to go to Iowa City or Mayo for complicated robotic surgery or urologic care.
