Prostate Surgery: Robotic Prostatectomy – A Treatment for Prostate Cancer

Download Chinese PDF, 8.50MB, PDF

Prostate cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the prostate.

The da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci® Robotic System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements using tiny instruments inside your body.

Though it is often called a “robot”, da Vinci ® system cannot act on its own. Instead, the surgery is performed entirely by your doctor. Together, da Vinci ® technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings.

As a result, you may be able to get back to your normal activities faster – without the long recovery that usually follows an open surgery.
