David I. Lee, MD performs daVinci Prostatectomy (DVP)
Da Vinci Prostata-Operation prostate cancer surgery using the da Vinci system offers several advantages over the traditional laparoscopic surgical method of treating prostate cancer when objectively compared in the following areas:. It is a minimally invasive prostate removal and cancer treatment surgery. Samadi developed his signature SMART Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique Prostate Surgerywhich incorporates oncologic principles, combines it with da Vinci Prostata-Operation radical prostatectomy skills and builds upon it with a robotic surgery approach.
Robotic surgery is really a remote control operation, where the surgeon sits at a real distance from the patient and as he does the surgery, the entire da Vinci Prostata-Operation of the surgeon are translated through da Vinci Prostata-Operation sensitive fibers of the machine with certain precision to the tip of the instruments.
SMART is a revolutionary and advanced prostate cancer surgery and prostate cancer treatment method, which drastically reduces blood loss, pain, hospital stay, recovery time and the side effects of other types of prostate cancer treatments. This results in no sutures and less damage to the neurovascular bundle. Get a glimpse inside the operating room and meet Dr. David Samadi and his OR team while performing a robotic prostate surgery:. The da Vinci robotic prostate cancer da Vinci Prostata-Operation system is able to provide superior clinical prostate cancer treatment results when compared to non-robotic traditional and scope-assisted procedures.
More traditional scope-assisted surgery typically provides a much lower resolution image, and a far more limited field of vision. This means that the malignant tissue can be removed with an efficiency and ease unheard of prior to the era of robotic surgery. This greater precision reduces the da Vinci Prostata-Operation of relapse due to missed cancerous tissue.
The precision of the da Vinci system also allows the surgeon to avoid damaging healthy prostate tissue, which improves clinical results, reduces scar tissue build up, and contributes to an overall shorter recovery period da Vinci Prostata-Operation robotic prostate surgery. However, for prostate cancer treatment, surgery can be the most effective choice for eradicating malignant tumors without the painful side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Among the more serious risks associated with surgical treatment is the possibility of infection at the incision site. Da Vinci Prostata-Operation infections are often the primary cause of serious complications which may hamper a quick and uneventful recovery.
The da Vinci system greatly mitigates the risk of infection during robotic prostate surgery. First, the size of the incision s is significantly smaller with robotic prostate surgery than with the traditional procedure. A standard, non-robotic prostate surgery requires a six- to eight-inch vertical incision to the abdomen. Post-operative infections are more common than intra-operative infections, as hospital rooms are not maintained at the same level of sterility which operating rooms are.
These smaller incisions will heal significantly faster than the large incision needed in traditional surgery. The smaller incisions required to maneuver the operating arms heal much faster, require fewer sutures and, therefore, are less vulnerable to tearing or infection. Da Vinci Prostata-Operation precise movements of the robotic arms allow a more targeted approach for cleaner removal of malignant tissue and reduces damage to healthy tissue during robotic prostate surgery.
The operating arms of the da Vinci Surgical System are designed to avoid contact between the operating instruments and the walls of the incision. All of these advantages translate to a speedier and less worrisome recovery period. The robotic prostate surgery procedure leaves incisions which heal with little or no visible scarring.
In addition to the obvious aesthetic value, minimizing scar tissue on the interior walls of the incision promotes better healing. Excess scar tissue build-up can sometimes interfere with the proper function of the prostate. The precision of robotic prostate surgery offers an inherent solution to this potential difficulty.
By minimizing the size of the incision needed to remove cancerous tissue, the risk of scar tissue-related complications is greatly mitigated. The surgeon da Vinci Prostata-Operation while seated comfortably at the da Vinci Surgeon Console, an ergonomically designed console viewing a 3-D image of the operative site. This part of the robot provides the instrument arms that are completely under the control of the surgeon. Supporting surgical team members assist in installing the proper instruments, preparing the 1-cm da Vinci Prostata-Operation in the patient, as well as supervise the laparoscopic arms and tools being utilized whenever a robotic prostate surgery is underway.
This component provides true 3-D images of the da Vinci Prostata-Operation field during robotic prostate surgery. Operative images are enhanced, refined and optimized using image synchronizers, high intensity illuminators and camera control units during the course of the robotic assisted surgery. Find out more.
