A removal of the whole prostate gland through surgery is called as radical prostatectomy. With the improvement of the surgical technique, the treatment can be performed with low blood loss, and without incontinence and erectile dysfunction. The development in technology provides a laparoscopic or minimally invasive operation that can visualize with the help of a small camera. Laparoscopic surgery can be done by using a hand but it can also perform with the help of guided robotic arms that can hold surgical tools. This kind of surgery called as robotic radical prostatectomy.

This type of surgery uses a high-tech robotic system known as the da-Vinci surgical system to perform the radical prostatectomy. The robot-assisted surgery provides a three-dimensional magnified view during the surgery and maintains surgeon skills with its robotic arms. These robotic arms interpret surgeon hand motions in fine and more precise manner.

Robotic radical prostatectomy takes 4 to 5 hours to perform with 4-10x magnification. The blood loss during surgery is quite less and need only 5 tiny incisions. Robotic radical prostatectomy has provided less pain, quick recovery time and less blood loss. The robotic system may provide high precision when moving the instruments. The success of robot-based surgery majorly depends on the surgeon who operates that as it is recommended to consult an experienced and skilled surgeon. Robotic radical prostatectomy is the best option when a cancer has not spread in the outer area of the prostate.

Robotic radical prostatectomy is considered as a major surgery, so it also has some risk factors such as blood clots, blood loss, allergic reactions, wound infection and heart problems. Some complications can also cause due to the surgery, they are

  •         Erection problems in men
  •         Urinary incontinence
  •         Urethra damage
  •         Rectum damage
