Robotic Prostatectomy

da vinci surgerySince 2005, our doctors have been performing prostatectomies using the da Vinci® surgical system (DVP). This has allowed our physicians to take a giant leap forward in the treatment of prostate cancer. The robotic technique provides unparalleled surgical accuracy to significantly reduce blood loss and improve postoperative recovery.

Patients experience significantly less pain and less blood loss than those undergoing conventional “open incision” procedures. In addition, patients tend to enjoy quicker recovery time.

A traditional, open radical prostatectomy requires two days hospitalization and recovery lasting about 2-3 months. With robotic assisted surgery the recovery time is as little as two weeks – a greater than 50 percent reduction in recovery time.
