Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form in the tissues of the prostate. While no one knows the exact cause, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer among men in this country.


The following symptoms are common in prostate cancer:

  • Urinary problems
  • Inability to urinate, or difficulty starting or stopping the urine flow
  • The need to urinate frequently, especially at night
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Weak or interrupted flow of urine
  • Difficulty having an erection
  • Blood in the urine or semen
  • Frequent pain in the lower back, hips or upper thighs

da Vinci Robotic Surgical System

Facing any kind of urologic surgery creates a great deal of anxiety for most men. Among your concerns is: “Will my body function normally following surgery?” Traditional open urologic surgery – in which large incisions are made to access the pelvic organs – has been the standard approach when surgery is warranted.

da Vinci Surgery, a minimally invasive approach that utilizes the latest in surgical and robotics technologies, is ideal for delicate urologic surgery. This includes prostatectomy, in which the target site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.
