Prostatectomy (da Vinci® Prostatectomy)

You may have heard of robotic surgery for prostate cancer, also known as robotic prostatectomy.

More accurately, the da Vinci® prostatectomy is a robot-assisted, minimally invasive surgery that has become the preferred treatment for removal of the prostate following early diagnosis of prostate cancer.

With da Vinci prostatectomy, the likelihood of a complete recovery from early stage prostate cancer without long-term side effects is, for most patients, better than ever.

The da Vinci Surgical System at Inova enables surgeons to operate with unmatched precision and control, using only a few small incisions.

Benefits of the da Vinci prostatectomy include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster return to normal daily activities

Inova has the longest-running da Vinci prostatectomy program in the Washington, DC, metro area. And we continue to perform an increasing number of da Vinci procedures every year. This translates to unparalleled experience and expertise at work for you.

If you are a candidate for prostate surgery, talk to your surgeon about whether da Vinci robotic surgery is an option for you. Or call 1-855-MY-INOVA (1-855-694-6682) for a referral to one of our da Vinci robotic surgical specialists.
