About da Vinci ®

Referred to by many as robotic surgery for prostate cancer or robotic prostatectomy, 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. In fact, da Vinci Prostatectomy is the most effective, least invasive prostate surgery being performed today.

Though any diagnosis of cancer can be traumatic, the good news is that if your doctor recommends prostate surgery, the cancer was probably caught early. And, with da Vinci® Prostatectomy, the likelihood of a complete recovery from prostate cancer without long-term side effects is, for most patients, better than it has ever been.

da Vinci® Prostatectomy is a nerve-sparing procedure 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. Recent studies suggest that da Vinci® Prostatectomy may offer improved cancer control and a faster return to potency and continence.

Benefits

Benefits of da Vinci® Prostatectomy include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • And a faster return to normal daily activities

As with any prostate surgery, benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is patient- and procedure-specific.
