da Vinci Robotic Prostate Surgery

Minimally invasive robotic prostate surgery by Augusta's most experienced da Vinci urologist

If you have prostate cancer, your physician may recommend the removal of the prostate gland, a surgery known as radical prostatectomy. Just a few years ago, that would have required a 4-6 inch incision, often resulting in substantial blood loss and occasionally a lengthy recovery.

But we offer a less invasive option known as da Vinci Prostatectomy.

Benefits of da Vinci Prostatectomy

The Robotic Surgical System allows surgeons to see vital anatomical structures more clearly and perform more precise procedures. This is important for prostate surgery because the prostate gland is tightly confined and surrounded by nerves that affect urinary control and sexual function. By sparing surrounding nerves, robotic surgery may enhance both your recovery and clinical outcome. Benefits include:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Less scarring
  • Possibly less pain
  • Possibly less risk of infection
  • Possibly quicker return to normal activities
