Intracorporeal urinary diversion (ICD) provides superior postoperative outcomes compared to extracorporeal urinary diversion (ECD). The investigators' hypothesis that ICD may provide clinical benefit is based on principles of less bowel and ureteral handling, superior operating room workflow, less exposure to the external environment, and optimal visualization with ICD while utilizing a smaller incision compared to ECD. ICD should have less bowel-related complications, lower pain scores allowing patients to be discharged from the hospital sooner and regain functional independence more quickly.
