Robotic-assisted prostate malignancy surgery for prostate cancer
  • medical treatment:prostate cancer
program details
Using a robotic device (da Vinci) consisting of instruments manipulated by a physician and a three-dimensional endoscope, several holes of several centimeters in diameter are made in the lower abdomen, and the prostate gland is removed and excised.
This procedure makes the operation more delicate and precise than conventional laparoscopic surgery because it provides a three-dimensional view and the surgical site can be magnified.
It is a more delicate procedure than laparoscopic surgery, and it is also expected to restore postoperative urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction.

Hospitalization days: 10 days
Actual results: 836 cases (as of December 2022)
