ROBOTIC ASSISTED RADICAL LAPAROSCOPIC PROSTATECTOMY 

Laparoscopic radical

prostatectomy is a

minimally invasive

surgery procedure

used to remove a

patient's cancerous

prostate.

How long does this surgery take?

 

Although this surgery takes approximately 3 hours to perform, patients generally feel much better and have significantly fewer pain requirements in the early operative period. Unlike open surgery where the catheter stays in for two to three weeks, most laparoscopic prostatectomy patients have their Foley catheters removed on the third day after surgery.

 

What are the advantages of this procedure?

 

Traditional surgery for tumor removal requires an eight-inch incision, at a minimum. The minimally invasive technique requires four or five tiny incisions (of less than half an inch) for the surgical instruments. Laparoscopic prostatectomy offers surgeons unparalleled visualization of the pelvic area, thus permitting precise removal of the prostate. Patients also experience significantly less blood loss.

Additionally, patients benefit from:

  • Reduced hospital stay (1½ days average) and faster healing

  • Less postoperative pain

  • Shorter recovery time

  • Quicker return to normal activity (one to two weeks) and work (two to three weeks)

  • Smaller incisions and less scarring required to obtain optimal results.

 

ABOUT
Us

Robotic-assisted radical laparoscopic prostatectomy is accomplished using the da Vinci® Surgical System, a sophisticated robotic surgery system that allows surgeons to operate on the prostate with enhanced vision, control and precision.

Using the advanced surgical system, miniaturized robotic instruments are passed through several small keyhole incisions in the patient’s abdomen to allow the surgeon to remove the prostate and nearby tissues with great precision. This is much less invasive than a conventional radical retropubic prostatectomy, which involves an abdominal incision that extends from the belly button to the pubic bone.

 

Although this surgery takes approximately 3 hours to perform, patients generally feel much better and have significantly fewer pain requirements in the early operative period. Unlike open surgery where the catheter stays in for two to three weeks, most Robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy patients have their Foley catheters removed on the third day after surgery.
