Which benefits does da Vinci® offer?

As a patient the robot-assisted da Vinci® prostatectomy offers you the following advantages:

The technology of the da Vinci® surgical system combines the benefits of open surgery with those of traditional laparoscopy.

The benefits of the da Vinci® prostatectomy at a glance:

  • Minimum scarring
  • Less blood loss
  • Less need for pain relief
  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster restoration of continence
  • Improved reconstruction of potency nerves

The da Vinci® surgical system even offers the surgeon benefits over open or minimally invasive surgery:

  • With the option of an up to ten-fold magnification, nerves and tissue structures are significantly easier to detect and can thus be surgically spared.
  • As a result of being able to translate the surgeon’s hand movements differently, delicate structures can be precisely dissected. In conventional laparascopy movements are translated directly, i.e. at a ratio of 1:1. With the da Vinci® surgical system large hand movements are translated into small instrument movements.
  • Fatigue-free operation thanks to the ergonomic working position.
