da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy
Minimally Invasive Approach for Prostate Cancer
Most radical prostatectomy cases are now performed with the assistance of the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, which offers a minimally invasive approach with only several tiny incisions rather than a large incision in the lower abdomen. The da Vinci robotic prostatectomy allows for a faster recovery and fewer side effects than traditional open surgery so patients get back to their normal routine as quickly as possible. Most patients can go home the next day and resume full activities in as little as 3 weeks.
The improved visualization offered by robotic surgery also minimizes the most concerning side effects of prostatectomy. This includes less, if any, urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. The Board-Certified urologists at Associated Urological Specialists have performed thousands of da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy procedures.
