Men with prostate cancer in Cape Coral, Florida, who require a robotic radical prostatectomy can receive world-class treatment from the expert surgeons at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. While robotic-assisted surgeries offer numerous benefits, the success of a procedure depends, above all else, on the skill level of the surgeon. A surgeon’s skill increases with every procedure performed, and at Moffitt, our surgeons perform a high number of robot-assisted procedures every year. In sum, we have the expertise and the technology to achieve the best possible quality of life for our patients.
A radical prostatectomy involves the removal of the prostate gland, nearby tissues and the seminal vesicles. With a laparoscopic approach, a surgeon can perform the procedure through tiny incisions using an instrument with a small video camera attached to view the affected area within the body. To complete a robotic radical prostatectomy, a surgeon can control the surgical instruments using robotic arms to enhance maneuverability and precision. Some of the benefits of robotic-assisted procedures include:
- Less noticeable scars
- Faster recovery times
- Decreased pain and better pain management
- Fewer complications
If you travel from Cape Coral, FL, to receive treatment at Moffitt, a team of surgeons, medical oncologists and other specialists will collaboratively determine whether you would benefit more from a robotic radical prostatectomy or a traditional open prostatectomy. No matter which procedure you undergo, your treatment team will convene on a weekly basis to evaluate your progress and refine your treatment plan as needed.
Throughout the treatment and recovery process, you may choose to rest comfortably at one of our partner hotels in the area. These hotels meet or exceed our stringent infection control and hygienic standards and offer discounted patient rates to Moffitt’s patients, making your stay more affordable.
