Men who have cancer of the prostate
may need surgical removal of their prostate glands. Removal of the prostate may also be necessary for other conditions, such as an enlarged prostate that cuts off urine flow.
Novant Health surgeons frequently use the da Vinci® Surgical System robot for conditions affecting the prostate. This is an innovative technology that uses robotic assistance to give your surgeon an even more accurate view of your internal organs and increased surgical precision. The da Vinci® robot is proven to enhance your surgeon’s skills for complex procedures and has replaced many traditional prostate surgeries that require more invasive techniques.
