Robotic Prostatectomy

Using Da Vinci Si or Xi surgical platforms at our local hospital, we remove the prostate with cancer through 5-6 tiny incisions. Robotic surgery has maintained cancer control rates while dramatically lowering blood loss, decreasing hospital length of stay, and improving patient recovery. Nerves are still often able to be spared (when appropriate) that run past the prostate and thus help to preserve erectile function. Techniques are also used to help maintain urinary control and prevent urinary leakage.
