Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer found in males in the United States. If your urologist recommends surgery to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate for a new, less invasive approach to surgery using the robotics-guided da Vinci surgery system. This approach for prostatectomy provides access to the internal anatomy through five small incisions. Through this new robotic technology surgeons perform a very precise, nerve-sparing operation with the da Vinci® Surgical System.
For the patient, using this advanced robotics technology may result in more complete eradication of cancer, retention of bladder control and potency. PeaceHealth Southwest is the only facility in the greater southwest Washington region with this advanced technology.
