daVinci Prostatectomy: A Less Invasive Surgical Procedure

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate for a new, less invasive surgical procedure.  Surgeons at CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital are now performing prostatectomys using the highly advanced daVinci Surgical System.

For most patients, daVinci Prostatectomy offers numerous potential benefits over open prostatectomy including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and transfusions
  • Less scarring
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
