The Urological Center is equipped with the da Vinci® Surgical System, a system that integrates the skill of a physician with the preciseness and accuracy of robotic technology. This minimally invasive procedure uses robotic arms controlled by a physician seated in a console next to the patient. The physician is able to see true 3D images of the operating field on a monitor. With 3D images, the surgeon can identify vital anatomy such as delicate nerves and blood vessels surrounding the prostate. The surgeon performs the operation by putting his hands in special devices called “masters.” The surgeon is then able to move small surgical instruments attached to the end of the robotic arms. Using EndoWrist technology, the instruments move exactly as the hand moves, allowing increased dexterity, maneuverability and preciseness. Benefits of the da Vinci® Surgical System may include:
- Less bleeding
- Less pain
- Less scarring
- Smaller incisions
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recuperation
- Faster return to regular activities
- Anticipation of improved potency and continence
