da Vinci® Prostatectomy
You may have heard of robotic surgery for prostate cancer or 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.
We know that any diagnosis of cancer is traumatic. The good news is that if your doctor recommends prostate surgery, the cancer was probably caught early. With da Vinci prostatectomy, the likelihood of a complete recovery from 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.
