We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
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.
