Urological Associates’ physicians are leading the way in cutting-edge medical procedures such as robotic surgery, endoscopic and laser surgery and minimally invasive treatment of BPH. We also employ genetic and genomic testing for diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
Da Vinci Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci Surgical System is a surgical robot that is a minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. Doctors Kresowik, Lightfoot, Bream and Berneking have been trained in robotics, and are experienced in the use of the da Vinci Surgical System. Urologists have been at the forefront in embracing robotic surgery and making it a standard tool in surgical intervention. We are proud that our experienced team has been part of this revolution.
The UroLift System is a revolutionary, minimally invasive approach to treating lower urinary tract symptoms due to an enlarged prostate. The procedure often allows men to discontinue medications and avoid major surgery. It is performed using implants that lift or hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. Urological Associates has achieved the “Center of Excellence” designation for having extensive experience and training treating patients with the UroLift System, demonstrating a commitment to exemplary care.

Guidance UTI is a rapid molecular test that points the way to swift diagnosis and personalized therapy options for recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI’s), prostatitis and more. Urological
Associates utilizes this test to identify more UTI-causing pathogens than traditional urine culture and determine the best antibiotic option.
