da Vinci® for Prostate

At GAMC, surgeons are using the da Vinci® Surgical System to perform prostatectomy. A da Vinci® prostatectomy is a robot-assisted, minimally invasive surgery that is quickly becoming the preferred treatment for removal of the prostate following the early diagnosis of prostate cancer. 

A prostatectomy is performed with the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System—the latest evolution in robotics technology. The da Vinci® Surgical System enables surgeons to operate with unmatched precision and control using only a few small incisions. 

Benefits and Risks

As with any surgery, there are certain risks involved in da Vinci® prostatectomy. Be sure to ask your doctor about all your treatment options, including the risks and benefits.
