Robotic Urologic Surgery

Facing any kind of urologic surgery creates a great deal of anxiety for most men. Among your concerns is: "Will my body function normally following surgery?"

With a traditional open procedure, your surgeon uses an 8-10 inch incision to access the prostate. This approach often results in substantial blood loss, a lengthy, uncomfortable recovery and a risk of impotence and incontinence.

Conventional laparoscopy uses a specialized surgical camera and rigid instruments to access and remove the prostate using a series of small incisions. This approach provides your surgeon with better visualization than an open approach. In addition, it provides patients with the benefits of a minimally invasive procedure.  Despite these advantages, conventional laparoscopy relies on rigid instruments and standard 2D video, technical limitations that can be challenging for the surgeon. Because of these drawbacks, conventional laparoscopy doesn't lend itself well to complex procedures like prostatectomy. Therefore, very few urologists use this approach. Moreover, neither laparoscopy nor open surgery can provide adequate visualization for a very precise, nerve-sparing prostatectomy.

da Vinci Surgery is ideal for delicate urologic surgeries, including prostatectomies. Because the area the surgeon is working in is tightly confined and surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function, your surgeon will be able to spare surrounding nerves using the da Vinci System. This robotic platform gives the surgeon unmatched precision and control and will help increase the likelihood of a complete recovery without long-term side effects.

For additional information on minimally invasive surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System, contact us or call your doctor.
