Robot-Assisted Prostate Surgery

Robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is a technique to remove the entire prostate gland and seminal vesicles as a treatment for prostate cancer.

The da Vinci® Surgical System uses robotic technology to translate surgeons' hand movements into precise maneuvers using small instruments inserted through five tiny "dot" incisions instead of one large incision. This revolutionary technology also provides the surgeon with a magnified "inside the body" view using a 3D video console to display the telescopic image.

Our team has had extensive training and has developed a clinical pathway designed to provide the highest quality care throughout your brief hospital stay.

Kristofer Wagner, MD and Patrick Lowry, MD are urologists with fellowship training in minimally invasive surgery and they both have specific training and experience in robot-assisted surgery. They perform the procedure together and you will meet one of them during your pre-op evaluation.
