What is Robotic Prostatectomy?
Robotic prostatectomy is a minimally invasive surgery for the removal of prostate cancers. This is a remote control operation, where the surgeon sits at a real distance from the patient and as he does the surgery. This can be used to treat low-risk prostate patients with a high success rate. This minimally invasive procedure is performed with the assistance of advanced surgical technology and an experienced laparoscopic surgery team. This is known as robotic prostatectomy.
How is Robotic Prostatectomy Performed?
Robotic prostatectomy is also known as Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy (RALP). Robotic prostatectomy is performed using a robotic interface known as the da Vinci Surgical System. It is also called da Vinci surgery. The accuracy of the da Vinci robotic prostate cancer surgery system allows the surgeon to avoid damaging healthy prostate tissue which improves the recovery period after robotic prostate surgery. This Technique is also known as bloodless prostate surgery.
Step 1 – You lie on the operating table and the patient unit is beside you. The unit has 4 arms. One arm holds the camera and the others hold the surgical instruments.
Step 2 – The surgeon makes 5 small cuts in your abdomen. The camera and instruments are inserted through the cuts to do the surgery. The patient unit is controlled by the Surgeon.
Step 3 – The control unit is where the surgeon sits, he can see the operating area on a screen and below the screen are the controls. Da Vinci’s robotic technology gives the surgeon a 3D view which can be magnified up to 10 to 12 times.
Step 4 – The surgeon uses the master controls to move the instruments on the patient.
Step 5 – This turns any movements the surgeon makes into much smaller movements of the machine. It reduces shaking and allows the surgeon to make tiny accurate movements. Cutting and putting in stitches is easier with the robotic assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the success rate of Robotic surgery for prostate cancer?
The success rate of robotic surgery for prostate cancer is between 94% and 100%.
What is the difference between Robotic surgery for prostate cancer and standard prostate surgery?
- A standard prostate surgery requires a six- to eight-inch vertical incision to the abdomen. A larger incision increases bacterial infection during and after the surgery for the patient.
- The da Vinci robotic prostate surgery system requires four to five small incisions, each less than two inches. These smaller incisions will heal.
How long does it take to recover from Robotic surgery for prostate cancer?
You can return to normal activity within two to four weeks after surgery.
How much does robotic prostate surgery cost in India?
The Cost of Robotic Prostate Surgery in India is USD 8000.
What are the side effects of robotic prostate surgery?
The most common side effects include the following: Urinary incontinence (inability to control urine). However, this side effect often improves over time.
