Robotic prostatectomy incisions  

About 16 percent of American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer sometime in their life.

One of the most common treatments for prostate cancer involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland, known as radical prostatectomy.
Traditional radical prostatectomy requires a large, 8-10 inch incision. This open surgery commonly results in substantial blood loss, a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery and the risk of impotence and incontinence.

Banner Baywood's robotic surgery system allows surgeons to perform complex procedures with greater precision through tiny incisions, usually 1-2 cm.

 Advantages for robotic prostatectomy:

  • less pain
  • less scarring
  • faster recovery
  • lower incidence of impotence and urinary incontinence
  • potential for better cancer control.

As with any surgical procedure, the benefits vary from patient to patient.
