Radical Prostatectomy with Da Vinci 1

Radical Prostatectomy with Da Vinci


Radical prostatectomy with the da Vinci system at Grupo Policlinica represents the pinnacle of precision urological surgery. Our specialists, with in-depth experience in robotic surgery, apply this revolutionary technique to treat prostate cancer, achieving a faster and less invasive recovery for the patient.

At our center, the patient is the heart of medical care; we offer complete assistance in several languages to ensure clear and direct communication throughout your stay. In addition, we provide the services of a personal assistant to guide the patient through each stage of treatment.

Aware of the needs that arise during medical treatment, we provide additional services to ensure maximum comfort and convenience. This includes personalized diets according to postoperative needs, accommodation management, tourist services for accompanying persons, and adapted transportation, from rental cars to specialized ambulances.

Our urologists have more than 15 years of experience in handling the Da Vinci robot.

Radical Prostatectomy with Da Vinci 2

Prostate cancer surgery (radical prostatectomy) is considered a highly complex surgery and the fact that it can be carried out using the latest generation of robotic technology, the Da – Vinci Xi Robot, brings many advantages to the surgical process, both in the execution phase of the surgery, facilitating and enhancing the surgeon’s skill and precision, and in the patient’s recovery phase, compared to more conventional non-robotic techniques such as open surgery or laparoscopic surgery.

Benefits of robotic surgery for the surgeon:

  • Greater precision and range of movement (demolitive – reconstructive).
  • Elimination of physiological tremor.
  • Real three-dimensional visualisation of the operative field.
  • Greater accessibility to deep anatomical planes.
  • Greater radicality in tumour removal.
  • Reduced probability of error.

Benefits for the patient:
  • Less painful postoperative period.
  • Lower risk of complications.
  • Reduced risk of infection.
  • Very small scars (aesthetic improvement).
  • Reduced side effects (incontinence – impotence).
  • Shorter hospitalisation time.
  • Reduced risk of bleeding (fewer transfusions).
  • Shorter recovery process.
  • Quicker return to normal daily activities.
Da Vinci Robot System

The Da-Vinci Xi Robot, considered the most sophisticated and evolved high-tech surgical instrument in the world today, is a large robotic platform created and designed to expand and enhance the surgeon’s capabilities by allowing him to perform surgery with a millimetre degree of precision, while enabling him to perform complex surgical procedures through a minimally invasive degree.

The surgeon makes four or five small incisions in the lower part of the abdominal wall, these small holes are what the robot uses as access ports.

The assistant surgeon, positioned next to the patient, is the one who will help align the robotic arms with the access ports, as well as supervise and insert the material and the surgical instruments at the ends. From this moment on, it is the surgeon who performs the operation who, from the control console (inside the operating theatre), guides and manipulates by remote control all the movements of the robot, sequencing the different steps of the surgery in order to carry out the removal of the prostate with the minimum possible collateral damage (respecting the surrounding structures as much as possible, especially nerves and blood vessels).

At the end of the surgery, the excised tissue is removed through one of these slightly enlarged mini incisions and the incisions are closed with a stitch and a small compressive dressing.

This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia.

Between 2 – 4 hours (varying depending on the size of the prostate and any difficulties that may arise).

Analgesic regimen is instituted during the immediate postoperative period.

Between 48 – 72 hours.

Rapid, between 1 – 2 weeks.

At the time of discharge you may have to continue to wear a catheter for a few days (6 – 8).
