Robotic surgery (da Vinci® Surgical System) for prostate cancer
A prostatectomy, partial or total removal of the prostate, is typically not the preferred method of treatment for prostate cancer. This is because surgery presents a higher likelihood of sexual and urinary side effects.
The da Vinci® Surgical System may be a better option, as it offers a minimally invasive alternative to complex surgery. This may result in fewer side effects.
