Facing any kind of urologic surgery creates a great deal of anxiety for most men—and understandably so. Traditional open urologic surgery, in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs, has long been the standard approach. Yet, common drawbacks include significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.
At Chilton Medical Center, we help put your mind at ease with the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, a minimally invasive approach for the most delicate urologic procedures. That includes prostatectomy to remove prostate cancer; the target site is not only tightly confined, but surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.
Benefits of Robotic Prostatectomy:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- Faster return to normal daily activities
- In many cases, better clinical outcomes
