Advantages of Robotic Surgery

Less blood loss in robotic surgery. | Reduced length of stay in hospital in robotic surgery. | Earlier removal of catheter after robotic surgery. | Less pain in robotic surgery. | Earlier return to sexual activity in robotic surgery.

Less blood loss in robotic surgery.

In robotic radical prostatectomy operations, the abdomen is filled with gas. Bleeding is reduced considerably due to gas pressure. The gas evacuated from the abdomen at the conclusion of the operation. Furthermore, the 3-dimensional high-definition cameras that can magnify the operation area help see the bleedings more clearly and stop them early on. In general, it does not require blood transfusion to patients.

Reduced length of stay in hospital in robotic surgery.

Since surgical incisions are smaller and blood loss is much less in robotic surgeries, patients can be discharged from the hospital earlier than they would be in case of an open surgery.

Earlier removal of catheter after robotic surgery.

Since a waterproof connection (anastomosis) of the bladder and urethra is possible during robotic prostatectomy procedure, the catheter can be removed within 6-7 days.

Earlier removal of catheter after robotic surgery.

Since a waterproof connection (anastomosis) of the bladder and urethra is possible during robotic prostatectomy procedure, the catheter can be removed within 6-7 days.

Less pain in robotic surgery.

Since incision wounds are smaller, patients feel less pain than they would after an open surgery.
Better cancer control. Thanks to a 3-dimensional high-definition view and instruments that can move 7 degrees, robotic prostatectomy allows the surgeon to see and dissect the cancerous prostate tissue more clearly. Robotic surgery provides a better and clearer view of the atypical area of the prostate, allowing for a more precise resection. As a result, incidence of positive resection margins is substantially decreased.

Earlier return to sexual activity in robotic surgery.

Sparing the nerve-artery bundle around the prostate in suitable patients is better achieved in robotic prostatectomy, and such patients return to their normal sexual activity sooner.

Better urine control in robotic surgery.

Compared to open radical prostatectomy, urine control is gained earlier in robotic prostatectomy. The clearer view, less bleeding and the possibility to keep the urethra relatively long are among the factors that help patients gain urine control sooner.
