Prostatectomy is the surgical removal of the prostate gland. The da Vinci prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures. Da Vinci surgery is ideal for this type of delicate urologic surgery, because the site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves that affect urinary control and sexual function.
Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus; sometimes the cervix and/or ovaries and fallopian tubes are also removed. It is the second most frequently performed major surgical procedure for women of reproductive age in the United States, according to the Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With da Vinci surgery, a hysterectomy requires only a few small incisions, so you can get back to life faster - within days rather than the usual weeks required with traditional surgery.
Single-Site da Vinci surgery is a minimally invasive option for the removal of the gallbladder. Patients who choose Single-Site da Vinci surgery experience virtually scarless results. That’s because the surgeon operates through only one small incision in the navel (belly button). After a fast recovery, the scar is almost impossible to see. Compared to manual single-port (access) laparoscopy, da Vinci surgeons have improved precision, control, better ergonomics and greater access. These advantages allow your surgeon to perform the most precise and comprehensive single-incision surgery available today.
da Vinci sacrocolpopexy surgery is a more precise, less invasive surgical option to treat pelvic prolapse. During this procedure, surgical mesh is used to hold the vagina in its correct position. The mesh remains in place permanently and may also be performed following a hysterectomy to treat prolapse and provide long-term support of the vagina. With da Vinci surgery, a sacrocolpopexy requires only a few small incisions compared to an open sacrocolpopexy where a long, horizontal incision is made in the lower abdomen — offering many potential advantages including less blood loss, smaller incisions for miminal scarring and a shorter hospital stay.
