Hear One Patient’s Experience with the da Vinci Prostatectomy
Determining your prostate cancer care options might involve deciding which treatment will result in fewer side effects. This video explains why one man chose to undergo a da Vinci prostatectomy.
When Doug was evaluating his cancer care choices, he weighed the potential outcomes of both surgery and radiation therapy. Radiation therapy could result in radiation exposure to healthy body parts such as the colon and rectum. Traditional surgery might produce incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Then Doug’s urologist recommended da Vinci prostatectomy. This robotically assisted surgical system can deftly remove the prostate gland without traumatizing nearby nerves and blood vessels. Doug underwent the surgery and has suffered no complications from it.
