The da Vinci-S Surgical System’s minimally invasive approach is ideal for delicate urologic surgeries like prostatectomies, where the target site is not only confined, but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.
Sarasota Memorial has the region's greatest number of da Vinci-trained urologic robotic surgeons, offering patients the latest options in minimally invasive urologic procedures. The da Vinci robot’s pinpoint accuracy helps to spare nerves and tissue, which in turn helps reduce the potential for incontinence and/or impotency issues that are sometimes side effects of traditional treatments and open surgeries. Smaller incisions and greater precision also benefit the patient by reducing pain and hastening recovery, as well as providing improved cancer control.
Center of Excellence: Uro-Gynecological Surgery
