Urological Surgery

In the field of urology, robotic surgery has brought great benefits to men fighting prostate cancer. Often, men facing this procedure are concerned about post-surgical pain, lengthy recovery and a potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.

Unlike open surgery, in which large incisions are made across pelvic organs, the robotics system allows surgeons to use small incisions and micro-instruments. Using robotics in prostatectomy, removal of the prostate, surgeons can take a minimally invasive approach to this delicate procedure. Robotics allow the surgeon to operate in a tightly confined area that contains many nerves that affect urinary control and sexual function.

Prostatectomy with the da Vinci® robotic surgical system has been shown to substantially reduce post-operative pain while hastening recovery. Studies also indicate that this procedure may offer improved cancer control along with a lower incidence of impotence and urinary incontinence.
