A wide variety of both cancerous and noncancerous conditions can affect a man’s urinary tract and reproductive organs, such as prostate cancer, bladder and kidney cancer, and ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction.
At Carilion Clinic, we offer the minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgical System to treat many of these problems, from the simplest to the most complex. Using the latest in surgical and robotic technologies, we perform a variety of urologic procedures with da Vinci ®, including prostatectomy, where the target site is not only tightly confined but surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.
da Vinci ® Surgery offers you many potential benefits over standard surgery, including:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster return to normal daily activities
