da Vinci® Prostatectomy

 

At The Lacks Cancer Center at Saint Mary's Health Care, our skilled surgeons choose to perform da Vinci robot-assisted prostatectomies.

With this system, our surgeons gain a much higher level of visibility and the precision needed to preserve the nerves that run alongside the prostate. In addition, this surgery is minimally-invasive. All of these positive factors lead to the increased likelihood of a much shorter and more complete recovery from prostate cancer without the long-term side effects of impotence and incontinence.
