Prostatectomy

When precise surgical services are critical

For delicate urologic surgeries like a prostatectomy, da Vinci® robotic surgery can be the ideal surgical approach, offering: 

  • A minimally invasive alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy
  • More precision and smaller incisions than otherwise possible
  • Shorter recovery time and less scarring for you 

If you’re in need of urologic surgery, such as a prostatectomy, then the experienced surgeons at Los Alamitos Medical Center may recommend the precise, minimally invasive approach of da Vinci robotic surgery. During a prostatectomy, the target site is tightly confined and surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function. The precision and accuracy of our robotic surgical services is a tremendous asset during such delicate surgeries. 

Minimally invasive surgery can alleviate many of the risks and disadvantages of traditional open urologic surgery such as significant post-surgical pain, a lengthy recovery and an unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function. 

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci system when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci system may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
