Robotic Salvage Prostatectomy for Recurring Prostate Cancer
A percentage of men who have radiation therapy to treat prostate cancer may experience a recurrence of cancer. If the cancer is limited to the prostate, he may be a candidate for a minimally invasive surgery known as robotic salvage prostatectomy, only a few physicians in the nation perform this procedure, including Rabii Madi, MD. That’s why the Center for Advanced Robotic Surgery serves as a referral center for patients with recurring prostate cancer from Georgia, South Carolina, the Southeast and beyond.
During this delicate procedure, the surgeon inserts small instruments and a camera through key hole incisions and carefully removes the prostate, adjoining seminal vesicles and surrounding lymph nodes.
Better Visualization. Great Precision.
The robotic surgical system lets your surgeon perform a more precise, tremorless procedure. It offers:
- Superior tools for dissection and removal of damaged tissue or organs
- Better visualization, which is critical when working around delicate and confined structures or removing tumors
Benefits Over Traditional Open Surgery
- Shorter hospital stays
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
- Less scarring
- Less pain
- Less risk of infection
- Quicker return to normal activities
