Prostatectomy

The John Stoddard Cancer Center uses the most advanced technology for cancer surgery. Referred to by many as robotic surgery for prostate cancer, da Vinci Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive cancer surgery that allows a surgeon to use a special console with hand and foot controls to manipulate tiny robotic arms and an endoscope (a 3-D camera eye) to perform intricate surgical procedures that are beyond the current limitation of human performance. The da Vinci Prostatectomy translates the surgeon's natural hand, wrist and finger movements at the control console into corresponding micro-movements of the instrument tips, which are positioned inside the patient through small incisions. Wide ranges of instruments are available to perform different types of procedures. Click on the link below to learn more about da Vinci Prostatectomy or to find da Vinci trained surgeon in the area.
