Prostate cancer is caused by the uncontrolled multiplication of cells in this area. Prostate cancer, which is one of the most common types of cancer in men, provides very successful results in early detection. In the surgical treatment of prostate cancer, cancerous tissue is removed. Imaging tests and techniques such as MR fusion biopsy are used in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. With the Da Vinci robot, prostate cancer surgery can be performed with minimal side effects and a high success rate.
Da Vinci Robot
The Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System is a medical technology that enables robotic surgery to be performed. Operations with small incisions can be performed with the Da Vinci robotic surgical system. The da Vinci robotic surgical system offers a high treatment success rate with minimal side effects. The mobility of the instruments integrated into the robotic system is 4-5 times that of a human, so very effective results can be achieved in a limited space.
What is Robotic Prostatectomy?
In robotic prostatectomy, the application area is at the level of the bladder and prostate, and this area is completely surrounded by nerves. The aim of prostate cancer surgery is to remove the prostate or cancerous tissue without damaging the nerve-vascular bundle. After the successful completion of this procedure, the bladder is reconnected to the urinary tract and the operation is ended. Robotic prostatectomy is the most effective method in the surgical treatment of prostate cancer today.
Advantages of Robot-Assisted Prostatectomy
One of the advantages of robotic prostatectomy is fewer incisions and less blood loss. Thanks to the Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System, fewer incisions are made compared to traditional methods and the risk of infection, edema and blood loss is reduced. After robotic prostatectomy, patients stay in the hospital much shorter and the overall recovery time is much shorter. Robotic surgical procedures are completed in less time compared to traditional methods, and it is possible to ensure urinary control and return to sex life faster. With the Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, it is possible to successfully preserve the anatomical structure and minimize the risk of nerve damage.
