The Da Vinci Prostatectomy — A Less Invasive Approach

If surgery is required to treat your prostate cancer you may be a candidate for a new less invasive approach to prostate removal that utilizes robotic surgery. It's called the da Vinci® surgical system and it is located at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. This method incorporates the latest advancements in robotic-assisted technology and allows the surgeon greater visualization, enhanced dexterity, precision, control and superior ergonomics.

For qualified candidates, the da Vinci® Prostatectomy offers numerous potential benefits over the traditional open prostatectomy, with the following goals:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and transfusions
  • Less scarring
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
