Robotic Prostate Surgery

One of the most common treatments for prostate cancer is the surgical removal of the prostate gland. This is known as radical prostatectomy. Patients undergoing this surgery face a painful operation, complete with a large incision, a lengthy recovery and the possibility of post-surgery complications.

Our physicians at South Miami Hospital use the robot for a new, minimally invasive radical prostatectomy.

The robot makes operating on the sensitive anatomy of the urologic system easier and more precise. The surgeon maneuvers the instruments – some as small as a pencil tip – through tiny incisions and tight spaces in the body, helping to preserve and protect the delicate nerves surrounding the prostate gland. This also allows for a quicker return of urinary continence and sexual function.​
