da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy
da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy is used in the treatment of prostate cancer. Using this method, the surgeon is able to perform Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy with great precision. Da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy is the most accurate and precise way to surgically treat prostate cancer. This robotic system utilizes a three dimensional viewing system and endowrist technology to provide the surgeon with the incredible ability to navigate the male pelvis, dissect the prostate, save the neurovascular bundles, and preserve the pelvic floor muscles.
da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy results in high cure rates for prostate cancer, while minimizing side effects of surgery. This minimally-invasive prostate surgery for prostate cancer is associated with less blood loss, faster recovery, less pain, faster return of continence, and faster return of erections.
Nerve Sparing Prostatectomy is performed very accurately with the da Vinci Robotic System. Therefore, development of long term impotence is unlikely with
the use of the da Vinci Robot in performing Laparoscopic Prostatectomy.
Bladder Neck Sparing Prostate Surgery is also performed more accurately using the da Vinci Robot. The pelvic floor muscles are visualized and dissected very accurately, thus preventing injury to these delicate muscles. Subsequently, da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy results in faster return of continence and bladder control.
It is very important that this surgery be performed by highly skilled robotic surgeons. Cancer cure, negative margins, nerve bundle preservation, bladder neck preservation, and quality of life preservation are direct results of a surgeon's level of experience.
Dr. S. Adam Ramin has performed, proctored, and taught over 1000 da Vinci Robotic Laparoscopic Prostatectomy procedures. Dr. Ramin is an expert in the treatment of Prostate Cancer. Dr. Ramin has performed da Vinci Robotic prostatectomy at a number of prestigious institutions such as City of Hope Medical Center, Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, and Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California
