A Quick Look at da Vinci Robotically Assisted Prostatectomy
Prostate cancer is a common type of cancer among adult men in the United States, and it has been notoriously difficult to treat through surgery and radiation therapy in the past. However, with da Vinci Robotically Assisted Surgery , results for treatment are more predictable and surgery is much less invasive than conventional open procedures.
The da Vinci Prostatectomy is an outpatient procedure that is performed laparoscopically by a surgeon working at the state-of-the-art control panel that operates the robotic tools of the surgical machine. The surgeon remains in complete control during the entire procedure, but he or she will be able to operate with more precision than any human hand is capable of on its own.
To find out if you are a candidate for the da Vinci Prostatectomy, schedule a consultation with one of the specialized urologists at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center.
