da Vinci® Prostatectomy

Facing any kind of urologic surgery creates a great deal of anxiety for most men. Traditional open urologic surgery – in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs – has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted. Yet common drawbacks of this procedure include significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.

da Vinci Surgery, a minimally invasive approach that utilizes the latest in surgical and robotics technologies, is ideal for delicate urologic surgery. This includes prostatectomy, in which the target site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function. Recent studies suggest that a prostatectomy performed using the da Vinci system may reduce the risk of urinary incontinence and impotence following surgery. Ask your doctor if you’re a candidate for the latest prostate treatment option.
