Vattikuti Urology Institute
The Henry Ford Vattikuti Urology Institute, led by Mani Menon, M.D., offers the most advanced treatments for prostate cancer, kidney disease, bladder cancer, and other urologic disease. Dr. Menon is known worldwide for developing robotic surgery for prostate cancer treatment. His robotic surgery innovations have made robotic prostatectomy the surgical standard of care for prostate cancer. Since performing the first robotic prostatectomy at Henry Ford Hospital in 2001, Dr. Menon and the Vattikuti Urology Institute team continue to have the longest and largest robotic prostate surgery experience in the U.S. and the world: nearly 10 years and more than 7,000 robotic prostate surgeries.
Pioneered by Mani Menon, M.D., and the Henry Ford Vattikuti Urology Institute, the robotic prostatectomy surgically removes cancer while offering a high probability of preserving sexual function and urinary control.
