Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery

Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery (Da Vinci Robot)

The surgeons at Melbourne Urology Centre are fully qualified and trained in robotic surgery, performing minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of prostate cancer (radical prostatectomy), kidney cancer (radical and partial nephrectomy) and kidney obstruction (pyeloplasty).

The da Vinci System

The da Vinci System is a robotic-assisted surgical device. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic instruments at all times. This technology gives your surgeon:

  • High-definition 3D vision inside your body
  • Small instruments with greater range of movement than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, more precise movements and control

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

The potential benefits of robotic surgery over traditional surgery include:

  • Less blood loss
  • Smaller incisions
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recover time
