World-Class Prostate Surgery & da Vinci Prostatectomy
To Help Men Become Cancer-Free While Minimizing Side Effects
Nearly 33% of men in the U.S. currently suffer from issues with their prostate, making it the most common health problem that American men face. Prostate cancer is by far the most prevalent malignancy in men, with a new case being diagnosed every three minutes. By the age of 90, a majority of men will have suffered from it. The good news is that early detection and treatment has proven to be extremely successful. Every year 40,000 men undergo prostatectomy, or surgical removal of the prostate. While prostate surgery has helped to yield very high short-term survival rates for prostate cancer at nearly 90%, many men don’t look forward to dealing with the common side effects of impotence and incontinence. Fortunately for them, we at miVIP Los Angeles are here to help.
Benefits of a da Vinci Prostatectomy
At miVIP Los Angeles, we use the advanced da Vinci surgical technology in a majority of our prostatectomy procedures. We pioneered this state-of-art form of robotic surgery, and it has allowed men deal with their prostate issues in faster time with fewer side effects. A da Vinci prostatectomy has become one of the most popular forms of prostate surgery in the U.S. thanks to the following benefits:
- Better cancer control
- Faster return from erectile dysfunction
- Full return of urinary continence within 6 months
A da Vinci prostatectomy performed at miVIP Los Angeles is a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure, with most patients being able to return home the same day of the procedure and resume their normal activities shortly thereafter.
Da Vinci Surgical Technology
The reason behind the popularity of da Vinci prostatectomy surgery is the da Vinci technology itself. Finely-tuned robotic arms mimic the surgeon’s hand movements during the procedure, allowing for greater dexterity and increased precision. The use of a urethral catheter during the procedure typically isn’t required, allowing for better results than open or laparoscopic surgical options.
