Robotic Radical Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat prostate cancer. During the procedure, a surgeon uses a robotic system to remove the entire prostate gland and surrounding tissue.
The robotic system consists of a console where the surgeon sits and controls the robotic arms, which are equipped with surgical instruments and a high-definition camera. The camera provides a 3D view of the surgical site, allowing the surgeon to see the area in great detail.
The robotic system allows for greater precision and control during the surgery, resulting in less blood loss, less pain, and a faster recovery time compared to traditional open surgery. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes 2-4 hours to complete.
Robotic Radical Prostatectomy is a safe and effective treatment option for prostate cancer, with a high success rate in removing the cancerous tissue and reducing the risk of recurrence. However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications, which should be discussed with a healthcare provider.
