Partial Cystectomy (Robotic,Laparoscopic, or Open)
Robotic da Vinci Cystectomy
Surgical Treatment: Cystectomy
Cystectomy is traditionally performed using an open approach, which requires a large abdominal incision. Another approach, conventional laparoscopy, is less invasive, but limits the doctor’s dexterity, visualization and control, compared to open surgery.
da Vinci Cystectomy
If your doctor recommends surgery for bladder cancer, you may be a candidate for a new, minimally invasive approach – da Vinci Cystectomy.
da Vinci Surgery uses state-of-the-art technology to help your doctor perform a more precise operation than conventional instrumentation allows. It offers numerous potential benefits over a conventional open surgery, including:
da Vinci Cystectomy incorporates the best techniques of open surgery and applies them to a robotic-assisted, minimally invasive approach.
