Robotic-Assisted Prostatectomy for Prostate Cancer

When medication and other non-surgical treatments fail to relieve symptoms, surgeons at Atrium Medical Center can treat a broad range of conditions that affect the organs of the urinary tract (kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder and urethra) and the male reproductive organs.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Prostatectomy

Minimally-invasive, robotic-assisted surgery at Atrium Medical Center is ideal for delicate urologic surgery. This includes prostatectomy — removal of the prostate gland to treat cancer — in which the target site is not only tightly confined, but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function. Using a surgical robot, the surgeon has a better tool to spare surrounding nerves, which may enhance both recovery and clinical outcomes.

Compared to traditional open surgery for prostate cancer, robotic-assisted surgery provides the potential for:

  • A faster recovery
  • Better cancer control
  • Faster return of erectile function
  • Improved chance for return of urinary continence

Robotic-Assisted Pyeloplasty for Urinary Tract Disorders

The Atrium Medical Center uses a minimally-invasive approach to treat urinary obstruction. This robotic-assisted surgery, known as pyeloplasty, removes the blockage in the urinary system. During this surgery, the healthy part of the kidney is reattached to the healthy part of the ureter — the narrow tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder.
