Surgeons have increased dexterity, precision and control when performing urologic procedures using the DaVinci Robot – which translates to better outcomes for patients. But while the goals of robotic surgery are often similar to open surgery, the advantages of robot-assisted surgery to treat prostate cancer, renal, for example, are many.

Urologic procedures are performed through tiny incisions and robotic-assisted visualization. The robot is controlled by a urologic surgeon from a console in the operating room, just a few feet away from the patient. A second surgeon remains at the patient’s side to assist.

Because the incisions made are smaller than in traditional (open) surgery, there is significantly less blood loss, leading to a quicker recovery. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within two weeks after the operation.

Rapid Recovery. After robotic surgery, many patients experience less pain, leave the hospital sooner, and return to everyday activities in less time than those who undergo open surgery.

Pinpoint Precision. Surgeons performing robotic surgery are able to remove the cancer while preserving surrounding nerves and tissues, allowing you to maintain a high quality of life after surgery.
