da Vinci Prostatectomy is the #1 choice for treatment of localized prostate cancer* in the United States, and is rapidly being chosen by more men, as well as their doctors, worldwide. da Vinci Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures.

The potential benefits of the da Vinci Prostatectomy are:

Effective Cancer Control:
Studies have shown that experienced surgeons have achieved excellent results in removing prostate cancer without leaving cancer cells behind.
Improved and Early Return of Sexual Function:
Studies have shown that most patients have a rapid return of sexual function.
Improved and Early Return of Continence:
Studies have shown that most patients have a rapid return of urinary continence.
Improved Results Over Traditional Treatments:
Patients may benefit from surgical treatment of localized prostate cancer, the established gold standard, as compared to radiation. Surgery has a higher and longer survival rate than radiation or other treatments. Surgery also has a lower risk of long-term complications than radiation treatments.
Minimally Invasive Surgery:
The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Additional patient benefits may include:

1)Significantly less pain
2) Less blood loss
3) Less scarring
4) Shorter recovery time
5) A faster return to normal daily activities
