Cancer Care

da Vinci® Urologic & Prostate Cancer

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.

Carilion Clinic offers 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
