Robotic-Assisted Surgery 

Dr. Santis sitting near da Vinci robotOur urologic surgeons perform minimally invasive prostate, bladder and renal surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System. This revolutionary robotic surgical system enables surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures through small incisions with exceptional precision. Our high-definition, 4-arm da Vinci system is controlled by the surgeon at a video console in the operating room just a few feet from the patient. Four robotic arms precisely replicate the surgeon’s hand movements and high-definition cameras give him or her clear, magnified views of the operative field.

Benefits of surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may include:

  • Less pain and blood loss;
  • Fewer transfusions;
  • Less risk of infection and scarring;
  • Shorter Hospital stay and recovery time.

As with any surgery, the risks and benefits should be discussed with your surgeon.
