Historically, the only prostate surgery option was open prostatectomy, regarding large incisions and post-operative side effects. By using this method, the whole cancerous prostate was removed with risk of extreme blood loss, post-op infections, hospital stays that were prolonged, and significant discomfort.
Following prostatectomy, individual exercise was restricted and sometimes resulted in a loss in intimate purpose and bladder control after prostate surgery due to severance of the delicate plexus of nerves around the prostate gland.
There is a new state of the art solution for a successful prostate cancer treatment!
Precise Robotic Prostate Surgery
Using the DaVinci Technique for robotic prostatectomy, the doctor may use “motion scaling,” a characteristic that means modest hand movements away from patient’s body into correct moves within the body. The physician controls the prostate surgery that is automatic arms from your DaVinci console using wrist movements and pure palm. Action scaling during robotic prostatectomy was created to allow higher detail than is normally feasible in laparoscopic and open prostatectomy surgery. Indeed, conventional laparoscopic tools give surgeons less selection, skill and versatility of activity.
Laparoscopic tools in-use today don’t copy hand activities and can’t perform for example hitting behind tissues, suturing, and dissection exact action and manipulations requirement for automatic prostate surgery. The device filters tremors and unpredictable activities inherent inhuman hands out.
What are the benefits of Robotic Surgery for Prostate Surgery?
- Quicker return to normal activity
- Shorter hospitalization (most patients go home the next day)
- Reduced risk of complications such as incontinence and impotence
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
- Reduced pain
