As a treatment for prostate cancer, a robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy removes the entire prostate gland and seminal vesicles. Baylor Scott & White Health uses the technologically advanced robotic surgery platform – the da Vinci® Si HD Surgical System, manufactured by Intuitive Surgical, Inc.
The da Vinci Si provides surgeons at Baylor Scott & White with superior live 3D visualization and magnification of the surgical area, plus enhanced precision, dexterity and control.
Benefits may include:
- Less pain and blood loss
- Less scarring, due to tiny incisions
- Shorter recovery time and hospital stay
- Quicker return to daily activities
