da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy

The da Vinci prostatectomy is also known as robotic laparoscopic prostatectomy or robotic radical prostatectomy. Mr Karim was one of the first urologists to perform a robotic prostatectomy in the UK as a treatment for prostate cancer. He is also one of the highest volume surgeons performing da Vinci prostatectomies in the UK. There are testimonials in the Daily Mail and other papers by men about their experiences following  robotic prostatectomy.

Robotic Prostatectomy is the #1 choice in the USA for the treatment of prostate cancer that is confined to the prostate. It is rapidly being chosen by more men, as well as their doctors, worldwide. The da Vinci Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures.

The potential benefits of robotic prostatectomy include:

  • Effective Cancer Control: Studies have shown that experienced surgeons have achieved excellent results in removing prostate cancer without leaving cancer cells behind.
  • Improved and Early Return of Sexual Function:
    Studies have shown that most patients have a rapid return of sexual function.
  • Improved and Early Return of Continence:    Studies have shown that most patients have a rapid return of urinary continence.
  • Improved Results Over Traditional Treatments:

Patients may benefit from surgical treatment of localised prostate cancer, the established gold standard, as compared to radiation. Surgery has a higher and longer survival rate than radiation or other treatments. Surgery also has a lower risk of long-term complications than radiation treatments.

Minimally Invasive Surgery:

The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Additional patient benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
