Each year in Spain 20,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed. Due to advances in both early diagnosis and the most effective forms of treatment, the prevalence of patients with prostate cancer, treated and alive, is increasing.


Root surgery of prostate cancer

The treatments have undergone important changes in the last decade. Robotic surgery (Da Vinci) is the best option in tumors located in the gland and patients up to 75 years, with Gleason (tumor grade) medium or high.

The Robotic Surgery has improved and exceeded ostensibly, in precision and results, the normal Laparoscopic Surgery and with it we can operate tumors, not only of prostate but also of bladder and kidney, occupying its most important role in the most advanced Urology. Our team has more than 5 years of experience and more than three hundred cases treated successfully.. From now on he is also present at the Santa Elena Clinic in Madrid.

Robotic surgery is a good option to treat prostate cancer in patients up to 75 years 

In patients older than 70 years, or younger who wish to have it, with Gleason up to 8, PSA less than 20, prostate of less than 40 cc and negative extension studies (CAT and bone scan), the first option because of its low invasiveness and Minor sequelae can be High Intensity Focused Ultrasound: HIFU ( ).

The robotic ultrasound device is the HIFU-Ablatherm®. 93% of the biopsies performed in a protocolized manner, one year after treatment, show absence of tumor.

Our team is the most expert in this treatment, of which we have already carried out more than a hundred cases in the last 7 years.

The Team coordinated by Dr. S. Giménez-Artieda is formed by the Drs: Javier Azparren and Ion Madina (Da Vinci) and Hernández Villaverde and Martín Martinez (HIFU) ( ). We develop all our activity in the Santa Elena Clinic.

IMRT and Brachytherapy are other options that are also contemplated in our Unit, within the field of Radiotherapy , in collaboration with the Clara Campal Comprehensive Cancer Center.
