Robotic surgery is a breakthrough in Minimally Invasive Surgery (Da Vinci robot). This technique provides the ability to perform complex surgical procedures with control and precision far superior to conventional laparoscopic approach resulting in less bleeding during and after surgery, with fewer side effects and better patient recovery.

Robot Da Vinci robotic surgery in urology

Robotic surgery involves the combined use of a console that offers a 3D vision of the surgical field, which controls a mobile platform with four robotic arms that replicate the movements of the hand specialist in urology in a very precise way by specific instruments miniaturized in the patient.

This way you can deal with complex surgeries that enhance the open technique and allow greater accuracy and security that conventional laparoscopic surgery.


Advantages of surgery with Da Vinci robot

In robotic surgery an incision that exposes the abdominal cavity is performed, since it is a laparoscopic procedure. Has vision in three dimensions (3D) and magnified (10x) which allows excellent visualization of the surgical field; 360 movements that help perform dissection and suture with enormous precision. It is especially useful in urological surgery (complex and renal pelvic).

Minimally invasive surgery results in a postoperative with less pain and faster recovery.


Applications surgery with Da Vinci robot

Oncological surgery

  • Prostate cancer: radical prostatectomy
  • Kidney cancer: (more common) or Partial nephrectomy Radical.
  • radical cystectomy

Reconstructive surgery

  • pyeloplasty
  • Correction of pelvic organ prolapse
