Patients from Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida, can receive a robotic radical prostatectomy from the expert surgeons at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL. As part of our commitment to using state-of-the-art technologies to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients, we offer this innovative robotic approach to removing the prostate gland, as well as nearby tissues and lymph nodes.
This minimally invasive, nerve-sparing procedure represents a significant advancement in laparoscopic surgery for prostate cancer. With a robotic radical prostatectomy, surgeons perform the laparoscopic procedure while seated at a remote control station, where they will view a magnified, high-definition image of the subject area and use robotic arms to perform the operation with greater precision than they would have with a more traditional approach.
