Prostatectomy

When precise surgical services are critical for delicate urologic surgeries like a prostatectomy, da Vinci® Xi robotic surgery can be the ideal surgical approach, offering: 

  • A minimally invasive alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy more precision and smaller incisions than otherwise possible
  • Shorter recovery time and less scarring for you if you’re in need of urologic surgery, such as a prostatectomy, then the experienced surgeons at Placentia-Linda Hospital may recommend the precise, minimally invasive approach of da Vinci®  Xi robotic surgery. During a prostatectomy, the target site is tightly confined and surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.
  • The precision and accuracy of our robotic surgical services is a tremendous asset during such delicate surgeries. 

Minimally invasive surgery can alleviate many of the risks and disadvantages of traditional open urologic surgery such as significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function. 

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® Xi system when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci® Xi system may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
