What is Radical robotic prostatectomy ?

Surgical procedure that involves the removal of the prostate gland, which may or may not be associated with the removal of the lymph nodes in the pelvis) assisted by a Da Vinci robotic surgery system. This surgical procedure is indicated in patients with prostate cancer.


How is Radical robotic prostatectomy performed?

How the procedure is performed: radical prostatectomy involves the removal of the prostate gland and seminal vesicles, ending with the junction (anastomosis) between the bladder and the urethra. For this, access to the abdominal and pelvic cavity is made through small incisions (8-10mm) through which the trocars and articulated arms of the robotic system are inserted. The robotic console surgeon and the assistant surgeon perform the intervention with the advantages of 3D vision, 10x magnified vision and the fine precision of movements provided by the robot.
