da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy

Referred to by many as robotic surgery for prostate cancer or robotic prostatectomy, the 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.

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. da Vinci Prostatectomy also offers these potential benefits:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss / transfusions 
  • Less scarring
  • Quicker return to normal physical activities
  • Improved results for urinary continence and sexual function in comparison to open procedures
