Minimally Invasive Treatment
Many patients facing a radical prostatectomy to treat prostate cancer can benefit by a highly successful, minimally invasive surgery using the da Vinci surgical robot.
The da Vinci surgical robot has revolutionized prostatectomy surgery. The robot empowers a surgeon to perform a very precise, nerve-sparing operation through several dime-sized incisions.
For the patient, surgery using the da Vinci robot may result in more rapid and complete control of urinary function, improved erectile function, and quicker return to preoperative activity.
Only a select number of medical centers are capable of performing complex genital reconstructive surgery, including treatment for Peyronie's disease, pelvic organ prolapse, traumatic urethral injuries and urinary incontinence. Sentara Norfolk General Hospital has a reconstructive program which is both nationally and internationally recognized.
