Prostate conditions can affect a man at all ages although
it is more common in the older man. The practice
offers evaluation for prostate cancer. We also offer a comprehensive range of treatment options for prostate cancer including brachytherapy, radiation treatment, open surgery, laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery.
Laparoscopic prostatectomy can be performed directly
by the surgeon or with the assistance of a surgical robot. Robotic or robot assisted surgery assists the surgeon with a 3D view and simplifies the stitching steps involved in the operation. Otherwise, it is exactly the same as laparoscopic prostatectomy performed directly by the surgeon.
Robotic prostatectomy involves removal of the patient’s entire prostate and attached seminal vesicles, along with part of the vas deferens.
advantages of robotic surgery
- reduced blood loss and need for blood transfusion
- reduced hospital stay
- reduced post-operative pain
- quicker physical recovery
