Dr. Manuel Espinoza, Urologist, has performed the Valley’s first robotic surgery to repair a ureter – a narrow tube which carries urine from the kidneys to the bladder. Following the first surgery, a 64-year-old Valley man said he is now free of pain he has lived with for the past 20 years. Dr.Espinoza used the Da Vinci robotic surgical system at Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen to perform the procedure.
