MINIMALLY INVASIVE FOR MAXIMUM HEALING
Advanced Prostate Cancer Institute is proud to serve our patients with the lifesaving da Vinci System. This revolutionary robotic-assisted surgical tool allows us to heal patients with greater precision than ever before.
Robotic surgery provides considerable benefits over open surgery. Instead of the large incisions formerly needed to access the pelvic region, dime-sized incisions are used to introduce the da Vinci System’s instruments. This results in less pain, a lower risk of infection and better overall results.
Your surgeon performs the procedure from a nearby console, using precise master controls that function like forceps. The surgeon’s hand motions are then scaled and translated in real time into micro-movements, with unmatched dexterity and exactness. Throughout the procedure, the surgeon has enhanced visibility of the surgical site from da Vinci’s 3D high-definition camera.
The most common da Vinci prostate cancer surgery type is prostatectomy, and the system enables our surgical team to save many nerve fibers and blood vessels that might otherwise be lost when the prostate is removed. Patients also enjoy a more rapid return of urinary continence and sexual function after the procedure.
Advanced Prostate Cancer Institute has successfully treated many patients using this sophisticated, FDA-approved surgical system. We look forward to discussing this and other treatment options that may be right for you.
