da Vinci Prostatectomy
Referred to by many as robotic surgery for prostate cancer or robotic prostatectomy,
da Vinci Prostatectomy is more accurately a robotically-assisted, minimally
invasive surgery that is quickly becoming the preferred treatment for
removal of the prostate following early diagnosis of prostate cancer.
In fact, studies suggest that da Vinci Prostatectomy may be the most effective,
least invasive prostate surgery performed today.
Though any diagnosis of cancer can be traumatic, the good news is that
if your doctor recommends prostate surgery, the cancer was probably caught
early. And, with robotically-assisted Prostatectomy, the likelihood of
a complete recovery from prostate cancer without long-term side effects
is, for most patients, better than it has ever been. St. Jude Medical
