Urologic Robotic Surgery
Urologic surgery treats conditions related to men’s and women’s urinary tracts (kidneys, bladder, ureters urethra) and the male reproductive system (penis, testicles, prostate, vas deferens). When surgery is required, the micro instruments of the da Vinci® Surgical System lower the risk of complications found in traditional surgery.
Urologic robotic procedures include:
- Cystectomy ileal loop
- Lymph gland staging
- Partial nephrectomy
- Ureteral reimplantation
One of the most common urologic robotic surgeries is a robotic prostatectomy.
This surgery is a method of treating aggressive prostate cancer by completely removing the prostate. With the da Vinci® Surgical System, our surgeons perform your prostatectomy safely and with great precision using micro instruments through an incision less than an inch long.
With robotic surgery, you’ll recover faster than with conventional prostatectomy. Potential benefits include:
- Effective cancer control
- Faster return of urinary continence and sexual function
- Less pain, shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery
- Minimal potential side effects
If your physician recommends surgery, ask if robotic surgery is right for you. Robotic prostatectomy and other urologic robotic surgeries are available at:
