da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Dr. Price is one of the foremost experts on the da Vinci robot and its use in Urologic surgery. In 2003, Dr. Price was one of the first surgeons to begin using the new technology for Robotic Prostatectomies. Dr. Price worked with the experts in the development of this technology that offers a minimally invasive option for major surgery.
What is the da Vinci Surgical System?
The da Vinci Surgical System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities allowing for a less invasive surgical procedure for the patient.
How does the surgeon use the da Vinci system?
With the da Vinci Surgical System, small incisions are used to insert miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site inside your body.
At the same time, the latest robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments.
What are the benefits of the da Vinci?
Imagine major surgery performed through the smallest of incisions. Imagine having the benefits of a definitive treatment but with the potential for significantly less pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster return to normal daily activities – as well as the potential for better clinical outcomes.
Although it is often called a “robot,” the da Vinci System cannot move or operate on its own; your surgeon is 100% in control.
What types of conditions is the da Vinci used to treat?
- Common urologic conditions that may require surgery in which the da Vinci robotics may be used:
- Prostate Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Kidney and Urinary Tract Disorders
