da Vinci Prostatectomy

Surgical Services > da Vinci Surgery > da Vinci Prostatectomy

da Vinci® Prostatectomy is the #1 choice for treatment of localized prostate cancer in the United States, and is rapidly being chosen by more men, as well as their doctors, worldwide. da Vinci Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures. 

The potential benefits of the da Vinci Prostatectomy are:

  • Effective Cancer Control:
    Studies have shown that experienced surgeons have achieved excellent results in removing prostate cancer without leaving cancer cells behind.
     
  • Improved and Early Return of Sexual Function:
    Studies have shown that most patients have a rapid return of sexual function.
     
  • Improved and Early Return of Continence:
    Studies have shown that most patients have a rapid return of urinary continence.
     
  • Improved Results Over Traditional Treatments:
    Patients may benefit from surgical treatment of localized prostate cancer, the established gold standard, as compared to radiation. Surgery has a higher and longer survival rate than radiation or other treatments. Surgery also has a lower risk of long-term complications than radiation treatments.
     
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery:
    The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. Additional patient benefits may include:
    • Significantly less pain
    • Less blood loss
    • Less scarring
    • Shorter recovery time
    • A faster return to normal daily activities

Thanks to a breakthrough surgical technology, surgeons now widely offer a minimally invasive option for prostatectomy, the da Vinci Prostatectomy.

Imagine major surgery performed through the smallest of incisions. Imagine having the benefits of a definitive treatment but with the potential for significantly less pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster return to normal daily activities – as well as the potential for better clinical outcomes.

It is important to know that da Vinci Surgery does not place a robot at the controls; your surgeon is controlling every aspect of the surgery with the assistance of the da Vinci robotic platform.
