Robotic/Open Cystectomy For Bladder Cance

Robotic Cystectomy for Bladder Cancer

Robotic cystectomy is a newer, more effective, minimally invasive surgical method for muscle invasive bladder cancer. This procedure utilises the da Vinci Surgical System in which a robotic arm imitates the surgeon’s movements, amplifying their precision

 

Not long ago, all cystectomies were performed using an open surgical procedure in which notable tissue and nerve damage, significant blood loss, and an increased risk of post-operative infections and complications were common.

 

Benefits of Robotic Assisted Cystectomy:

  • Minimal damage to surrounding structures and nerves
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to a normal level of activity
  • Fewer noticeable scars
  • Low risk of complications commonly associated with cystectomy.
  • Minimal post-operative pain and discomfort.
