Robotic Radical Prostatectomy

  • Understanding the Procedure

    Parkway East, Robotic Radical Prostatectomy

    Robotic radical prostatectomy is a robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery performed using the da Vinci® surgical system to remove the entire prostate gland. Using this robotic system, the surgeon is able to connect the bladder to the urethra with precision and dexterity.

  • Robotic radical prostatectomy is quickly becoming the most popular treatment for prostate cancer, especially when the cancer is confined to the prostate gland. To date, more than 800 robotic prostatectomies have been performed in our hospitals.

    There are several benefits as opposed to conventional open surgery.

    • Smaller and fewer cuts made
    • Faster continence and potency recovery, with less blood loss and pain
    • Shorter time of dependence on a catheter
    • Shorter hospital stay of 2 – 3 days compared to 5 – 7 days with conventional surgery
    • Better conservation of the nerves needed to achieve and maintain an erection
  • At Parkway East Hospital, you can look forward to receive treatment in a warm and comforting environment. Our friendly staff and specialists are here to see you through each step of your journey towards recovery.
