da Vinci Prostatectomy

A daVinci Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures.With this advanced system the surgeon is able to perform a highly complex and delicate procedure through very small incisions.

The potential benefits of the daVinci Prostatectomy are:

    Effective Cancer Control
    Improved and Early Return of Sexual Function
    Improved and Early Return of Continence
    Improved Results Over Traditional Treatments

Additional patient benefits may include:

    Significantly less pain

    Less scarring - incision is much smaller than an open surgery
    Shorter recovery time - most patients go home the next day and have a catheter for 5 to 7 days (less than have the time for patients undergoing an open Prostatectomy)
    A faster return to normal daily activities
