Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery at Naples Urology Associates.  We pride ourselves in offering our patients the latest cutting-edge surgical options. One option we offer is the da Vinci Robotic System. This system combines robotics with computerized technology to allow doctors to perform precise laparoscopic surgeries in areas where this was previously difficult to do. Now many types of urological cancers, including kidney and prostate cancer, can be treated using the da Vinci System.

Surgery with the da Vinci System begins with a small incision that allows the machine to insert a high definition 3D camera into the surgery site. The surgeon uses the images to guide his hand throughout the surgery. The images are enlarged to allow the doctor to see precisely what is happening inside the patient’s body. Using a handheld device to guide the robotic arms, the surgeon is able to carefully remove tumors or organs with a level of precision previously impossible to attain. The movements of the robotic arms are dictated by the movements of the surgeon’s hands.

Benefits of da Vinci Surgery

Because of precision of da Vinci surgery, patients face many benefits when choosing this treatment option, including:

  • Less pain and blood loss
  • Fewer complications from surgery
  • Shorter recovery time and hospital stay
  • Smaller, less visible scars

Also, common side effects from urological surgery can sometimes be avoided.

Da Vinci Surgery for Prostate Cancer

The prostate is a difficult organ to reach, particularly because it is small and surrounded by many small but important organs and nerves. By utilizing the da Vinci system to remove prostates that are cancerous, many side effects, such as impotence and incontinence, can be avoided. This treatment is effective when prostate cancer is discovered early.

Da Vinci Surgery for Kidneys

Because kidney surgery requires a high level of precision, many times it is necessary to perform open surgery instead of laparoscopic surgery. In the kidney conditions where traditional laparoscopic surgery is not an option, da Vinci surgery may be possible. This procedure requires smaller incisions than traditional surgery. Because the doctor guides the robotic arms rather than using his own hands, the treatment can still be quite precise without being highly invasive.
