Surgery of the pelvic floor with robot assistance

Da Vinci, the surgical robot, offers surgeons a state-of-the-art tool with three-dimensional imaging.  This technology is increasingly being used in urological surgery to perform very precise procedures that are minimally invasive.

A surgical revolution

The Da Vinci robot is used most frequently in urological cases. For instance, it can be used to treat prostate cancer in a safe and minimally invasive manner.  What the robot does is allow precision operations to be performed on organs that are difficult to reach. It lowers risks of bleeding and damage to the nerves. The technology is also used for removal of renal or urinary tract tumours. Here again, this precision tool permits minimally invasive operations leaving fewer scars. Because the risks of complications are limited, post-operative recovery is speeded up.
