A healthy, athletic mother of four, Brittany Kurtz loves to run, hike, bike, and paddle with her husband
and boys. In August of 2013, she came down with what seemed to be a urinary tract infection that
slowed her down dramatically. Seven months, three doctors, and many antibiotic prescriptions later,
Brittany was still sick, and had been running a nearly constant fever. She did some research and
connected with one of our expert urologists, a robotic surgeon, who was determined to get her
answers…and relief. He used our da Vinci® Si robot to assist him in removing an infection-filled,
grapefruit-sized cyst on her kidney–through just four tiny incisions! Brittany was quickly back
to all her favorite activities, taking full advantage of Marin’s great outdoors.
