Welcome to the Minimally Invasive Urology Institute at The Miriam Hospital. We are committed to delivering excellence in minimally invasive urologic care, research and education. Offering specialized, comprehensive high quality care for complex urologic diseases, our team offers advanced treatment options with the patient at the center of everything we do.

Together with urologic surgeons, oncologists, nephrologists, registered nurses, dietitians, physical therapists and clinical social workers, we have developed a comprehensive Minimally Invasive Urology Institute that is unparalleled in our region. 

As pioneers in robot-assisted surgery, The Miriam Hospital was the first hospital in Rhode Island to perform a robot-assisted procedure. Since 2006, we have performed over 3,000 urologic robot-assisted surgeries, becoming one of the most experienced programs in New England.

The expertise and accolades of the Minimally Invasive Urology Institute’s interdisciplinary team are unmistakable. The Miriam Hospital is consistently ranked as High Performing in urology in the U.S. News & World Report annual report of Best Hospitals. We are proud to provide our patients with exceptional inpatient and outpatient nursing care. The Miriam Hospital has earned the prestigious Magnet Award for nursing excellence and is one of the very few hospitals in the country to receive Magnet designation continuously for over 20 years. Our physicians are not only skilled in excellent surgical technique and patient care, but as surgeon-scientists, often present their research at conferences both nationally and internationally.

We are very proud to offer you incomparable urologic care. We welcome you to the Minimally Invasive Urology Institute at The Miriam Hospital.

Very truly yours,
