Urologic Surgery

Traditional open urologic surgery – in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs – has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted. Common drawbacks of this procedure include significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery, and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function.

da Vinci® Urologic Surgery is Less Invasive

Fortunately, urologic surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System is a less-invasive surgical option that can help you avoid these drawbacks and return to normal activity much more quickly.

This minimally invasive approach, utilizing the latest in surgical and robotics technologies, is ideal for delicate urologic surgery. This includes prostatectomy, in which the target site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function. The da Vinci® System offers better technology that enables our surgeons to spare surrounding nerves, potentially enhancing both your recovery experience and clinical outcomes.
