We are your allies in the fight against prostate cancer.
In the field of urology, robotic surgery has brought great benefits to men fighting prostate cancer. Often, men facing this procedure are concerned about post-surgical pain, lengthy recovery and a potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.
Rather than open surgery, the robotics system allows surgeons to use small incisions and micro-instruments.
Using robotics in prostatectomy, removal of the prostate, surgeons can take a minimally invasive approach to this delicate procedure.
Prostatectomy with the da Vinci® robotic surgical system has been shown to have the potential to substantially reduce post-operative pain while hastening recovery.
