When medication and other non-surgical treatments are unavailable or cannot relieve your symptoms, surgery is the recommended treatment for many conditions that affect the male reproductive organs and urinary tract organs. These conditions include, among other things, prostate cancer, ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, bladder and kidney cancer, and vesicoureteral reflux.
However, facing any kind of urologic surgery creates anxiety for most men. Many wonder if their body will function normally after surgery.
Mercyhealth’s urology surgeons use the da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery system for prostatectomy and other urologic procedures. This minimally invasive approach, using the latest in surgical and robotics technologies, is ideal for both complex and delicate urologic surgeries.
Compared to traditional laparascopic surgery, da Vinci is a better tool to spare surrounding nerves, which may enhance both your recovery experience and outcome concerning continence and sexual function.
