At Docrates Cancer Center patients have access to a progressive Da Vinci robot‑assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy. The possibility to perform a surgery is always assessed on an individual basis.
The possibility to perform a surgery is always assessed on an individual basis according to the general condition of the patient, as the surgery is a more strenuous form of treatment than radiotherapy. While surgery is an effective form of treatment, medium and high risk cancer patients benefit from it the most. Surgery is particularly recommended when the prostate has enlarged and the patient has urination symptoms.
In planning surgery, we use a prostate MRI scan taken before biopsy.
Patients at Docrates Prostate Cancer Clinic have access to a progressive Da Vinci robot‑assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) through our partners. Robot‑assisted surgery combines the benefits of open and laparoscopic surgery. Patients who undergo robot‑assisted surgery recover faster than open surgery patients.
Patients who undergo Da Vinci robot‑assisted surgery have fewer adverse effects than patients who undergo the open surgery. They usually maintain a better ability to have an erection and better urinary continence.
