da Vinci® Urologic Surgery
Prostate cancer is among the most common cancer diagnosed in men. Prostatectomy, removal of the prostate gland and surrounding tissue, is the number one choice for treatment of prostate cancer in the United States. Surgically removing the cancerous prostate allows the doctor see how aggressive the tumor is and whether it has spread.
The da Vinci doctors at LG Health are using the da Vinci Surgical System to offer patients state of the art treatment for prostate cancer. Traditional surgery often requires a lengthy hospital stay and weeks of recovery. With minimally invasive robotic surgery, the goal is to accomplish internal repair while leaving the body surface as natural as it was prior to surgery. Many procedures require fewer days in the hospital and promote reduced recovery time. Patients can often get back to their normal routines more quickly.
By enhancing surgical capabilities, da Vinci Surgery offers a number of potential benefits, including:
- Less pain following the operation
- Less risk of infection
- Less anesthesia
- Less blood loss
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster and more complete recovery
- Quicker return to normal daily activities
