With the advancements in technology, radical prostatectomy can now be performed with minimally invasive procedures like laparoscopy and robotic prostate cancer surgery.
Robotic surgery is the modern-day enlightened method of surgery that makes use of cutting-edge technology. Surgeons can conduct complex surgeries with greater precision and flexibility, thanks to robot-assisted surgeries. Robotic surgery requires extremely small incisions that are precisely done. The most noteworthy advantage of robotic surgery is that it offers surgeons a clear and magnified view of the surgical site. With a highly defined view, surgeons can easily perform the surgery with maximum accuracy. The precision of the robot allows robotic surgery to be significantly more exact than traditional surgery procedures.
Robotic prostate cancer surgery is also known as robotic prostatectomy. Surgical removal of the prostate and surrounding tissues is the standard treatment option if the prostate cancer has not spread outside the prostate gland.
Procedures involved in robotic prostate cancer surgery cause minimal tissue damage and comparatively less blood loss to the patient, resulting in quicker recovery time. Moreover, there are fewer chances of infections caused during the surgeries and even fewer visible scars as compared to traditional surgeries.
Let's learn about robot-assisted prostate surgery-
Robotic prostate cancer surgery involves the use of-
A camera arm for a better and clear view of the area where the surgery is to be performed, a surgical arm to which the surgical instruments are attached, and a surgical console from where the surgeons control the whole procedure.
Because of the high-resolution camera, the surgeon gets great access to the operation site as it shows real-time images. In robotic prostate cancer surgery, the entire procedure is done under the supervision of the surgeon with dexterity & control and the robot alone doesn't perform the surgery itself.
Robotic Prostatectomy has the following advantages over open prostate cancer surgery-
1. In robotic prostate cancer surgery, 4-5 small incisions are done to perform the surgery while resulting in less blood loss, less postoperative pain, less scarring, and fast recovery. The patient quickly gets the bladder control back.
2. The technical benefit of robotic surgery is that the robotic arms move freely, precisely. And without any vibrations. The robotic procedures preserve sexual potency while still preserving continence.
3. Lower complication rate with better potency.
4. Reduced odds of cancer recurrence and increased PSA blood values.
The cost for robot-assisted prostate cancer surgery is determined on the following basis-
? SURGEON AND TEAM’S EXPERTISE
? LENGTH OF SURGERY AND HOSPITAL STAYS
? DIAGNOSTIC TESTS, MEDICINES
? POST SURGICAL COMPLICATIONS (if any)
