da Vinci® Prostatectomy

da Vinci® Prostatectomy

With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. da Vincienables your doctor to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Prostatectomy offers many potential benefits when compared to traditional open surgery, including:

  • More precise removal of cancerous tissue
  • Ability to perform nerve sparring surgery which enables:
  • Faster return of erectile (sexual) function: Studies show patients who are potent prior to da Vinci Surgery experience a faster return of erectile function than previously potent patients who have open surgery
  • Better chance for return of urinary continence: Recent studies show more patients with da Vinci Surgery have full return of urinary continence within 6 months as compared to patients having open surgery
  • Less blood loss
  • Less need for a blood transfusion
  • Less pain
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Lower risk of wound infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less chance of hospital readmission
  • Less chance of needing follow-up surgery
  • Fewer days with catheter
  • Less risk of deep vein thrombosis (life-threatening condition where a blood clot forms deep in the body)
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Prostatectomy offers the following potential benefits compared to traditional laparoscopy:

  • More patients return to pre-surgery erectile function at 12-month checkup
  • Faster return of urinary continence
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Less blood loss and need for a transfusion
  • Less chance of nerve injury
  • Less chance of inuring the rectum
  • Shorter operation
  • Less risk of deep vein thrombosis (life-threatening condition where a blood clot forms deep in the body)
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less chance of hospital readmission
  • Less chance of needing follow-up surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System is used in 4 out of 5 radical prostatectomies in the U.S.

da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery
(Gallbladder Surgery)

da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery (Gallbladder Surgery)

If you have severe gallbladder symptoms, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove your gallbladder. It’s an organ you can live without. Gallbladder removal is known as a cholecystectomy. It can be performed using open surgery through a large incision or with minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy).

With traditional laparoscopy and multi-port da Vinci Surgery, surgeons operate through a few small incisions. With single incision traditional laparoscopy and da Vinci Single-Site Surgery, your surgeon operates through one small incision in the navel (belly button).

Why da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery?

The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system coupled with flexible Single-Site instruments. These features enable your doctor to operate with enhanced vision and precision.

With da Vinci Single-Site Surgery, your gallbladder is removed through a single small incision in your belly button similar to traditional single-port laparoscopy. Patients who choose da Vinci Single-Site Surgery experience virtually scarless results.

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Single-Site Cholecystectomy offers the following potential benefits:

  • Low rate of major complications
  • Low conversion rate to open surgery
  • Virtually scarless results
  • High patient satisfaction
  • Minimal pain

da Vinci Single-Site Cholecystectomy offers the following potential benefits, similar to single-incision laparoscopy:

  • Low rate of major complications
  • Low blood loss
  • Low rate of wound infection
  • Short hospital stay
  • Virtually scarless surgery

This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System – offering the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. The da Vinci System is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.

Risks & Considerations Related to Cholecystectomy:

Potential risks of a cholecystectomy procedure include:

  • Injury to bile ducts, liver, pancreas
  • Injury to small or large intestine
  • Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)

In addition to the above risks, there are risks related to minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Single Site Cholecystectomy, such as multiple incisions, conversion to another surgical technique, urinary retention and hernia (bulging tissue) at the incision site.

da Vinci® Partial Nephrectomy

da Vinci® Partial Nephrectomy

Kidney-Sparing Surgery

Kidney surgery incision comparison

If your doctor recommends surgery for a kidney disease such as kidney cancer, ask about da Vinci Surgery. Depending on your disease state and tumor location, you may not have to lose your entire kidney to surgery. This surgical technique is called partial nephrectomy or kidney-sparing surgery. The goal is to remove only the diseased part of your kidney sparing the healthy, functioning kidney tissue.

Sparing kidney tissue is important because studies show that patients who have their entire kidney removed are more likely to suffer from chronic kidney disease (CKD) after surgery and need dialysis compared to patients who received a kidney-sparing partial nephrectomy.

Why da Vinci Surgery?

Instead of a large incision used in open surgery, da Vinci surgeons make a few small incisions – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result,da Vincienables your doctor to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Partial Nephrectomy offers the following potential benefits:

  • Precise tumor removal and kidney reconstruction
  • Excellent chance of preserving the kidney, where indicated
  • Low rate of operative complications
  • Short hospital stay

As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Partial Nephrectomy offers the following potential benefits when compared to traditional laparoscopy:

  • Shorter operation
  • Shorter warm ischemic time (shorter is better for kidney function)
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stay

State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.

Risks & Considerations Related to Partial Nephrectomy & da Vinci Surgery

Potential risks of any partial nephrectomy procedure include:

  • Urine leakage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Injury to surrounding organs

In addition to these risks, there are risks related to minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Partial Nephrectomy, such as hernia (bulging tissue/organ) at incision site.
