Bilateral Salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO)
Myomectomy

Urology

Prostatectomy

Urology

Prostatectomy

One of the most common treatments for prostate cancer involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland, known as radical prostatectomy.

Traditional radical prostatectomy requires a large, 8-10 inch incision. This open surgery commonly results in substantial blood loss, a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery and the risk of impotence and incontinence.

With da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, the prostatectomy is less invasive. This means that your surgeon see vital anatomical structures more clearly and can perform a more precise surgical procedure.

More Urology Procedures:

Nephrectomy – removal of the kidney only; treatment for kidney cancer.

Partial Nephrectomy – removal of cancer within the kidney and some of the tissue around it; may be done to prevent loss of kidney function when the other kidney is damaged or has already been removed.

Pyeloplasty – corrects a blocked or damaged ureter using a temporary stent or hollow tube; goal is to provide drainage of the kidney to the bladder.

Gynecology

Hysterectomy

If your doctor recommends a hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. Using da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery, your surgeon can operate with unmatched precision and control – using only a few small incisions. Traditional surgery methods typically require a large incision.

More Gynecology Procedures:

Sacrocolpopexy – corrects vaginal vault prolapse (or falling) by using mesh to hold the vagina in the correct anatomical position; can be performed following a hysterectomy to treat uterine prolapse.

Bilateral Salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) – removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes during a hysterectomy.

Myomectomy – for treating uterine fibroids.

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While procedures performed using the da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery are considered safe and effective, they may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
