Robotic radical prostatectomy
Robotic surgery for prostate cancer or robotic prostatectomy, da Vinci® Prostatectomy is more accurately a robot-assisted, minimally invasive surgery that is quickly becoming the preferred treatment for removal of the prostate following early diagnosis of prostate cancer.
The da Vinci® Prostatectomy is performed with the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System – the latest evolution in robotics technology. The da Vinci® Surgical System enables surgeons to operate with unmatched precision and control using only a few small incisions. Recent studies suggest that da Vinci® Prostatectomy may offer improved cancer control and a faster return to potency and continence.
da Vinci® Prostatectomy also offers these potential benefits:
• Significantly less pain
• Less blood loss
• Fewer complications
• Less scarring
• A shorter hospital stay and quicker return to normal daily activities
