Robotic Radical Prostatectomy

  • What is a Robotic Radical Prostatectomy?

    Mount Elizabeth, Robotic Radical Prostatectomy

    Robotic radical prostatectomy is a robotic-assisted laparoscopic/keyhole surgery performed using the da Vinci® surgical system to remove your entire prostate gland. Using this robotic system, your surgeon is able to connect your bladder to your urethra with greater precision. Besides enabling your surgeon to perform the procedure with higher accuracy and dexterity, this advanced system has also reduced docking time (aligning the instrument on the patient) to under 15 minutes and surgical operating time to as little as 2.5 hours.

  • Why do You Need a Robotic Radical Prostatectomy?

    Robotic radical prostatectomy is fast becoming the most popular treatment for prostate cancer, especially when the cancer is confined to the prostate gland.

    There are several benefits to robotic radical prostatectomy, as opposed to a conventional open surgery prostatectomy:

    • Smaller and fewer incisions
    • Faster continence (control of urine) and potency recovery, with less blood loss and pain
    • Shorter time dependent on a catheter (tube that drains urine from the bladder)
    • Shorter hospital stay of 2 – 3 days, as compared to 5 – 7 days with conventional surgery
    • Better conservation of the nerves needed to achieve and maintain an erection

    In addition, patients who have undergone the procedure reported not needing any blood transfusions, experienced no rectal injury and did not require conversion to open surgery.
