da Vinci Radical Prostatectomy Surgery

A New & Effective Way to Treat Prostate Cancer

According to the National Cancer Institute, in the first ten months of 2013 more than 238,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer. A combination of radiation, chemotherapy and medication has been used in the past to treat the condition, and several different types of prostate cancer surgery have been utilized to remove the prostate gland. Since the old surgical methods usually resulted in damage to the nerves, they are not performed as much as they once were.

miVIP utilizes a new and vastly improved minimally invasive prostatectomy that is done with the cutting edge da Vinci robotic surgery system. The da Vinci procedure is unique because there is less tissue damage involved. If your doctor has recommended that you have your prostate removed, turn to the leading experts at miVIP Las Vegas.

How is the Innovative Procedure Performed?

During the da Vinci prostate cancer surgery, five small incisions will be made on the patient’s stomach before an experienced miVIP urologist extracts the prostate gland. The surgery also utilizes:

  • A 3-D vision system so that the surgeon can see better
  • Computer assistance so that the surgeon can keep a stable grip on the prostatectomy instruments
  • Robotic instruments, including graspers and scissors

Despite the term “robotic surgery,” the surgeon will be in control throughout the entire procedure, but they will simply be using robotic technology to improve the results of the surgery. The patient’s bladder is pulled down where the urethra goes down the prostate before the urethra is pulled up. Afterwards, the bladder and the urethra are sewn together before the surgery is completed.

Your miVIP Surgical Savants

By choosing to have your prostate cancer surgery done by miVIP specialists, you will have the best surgeons and medical professionals in the world taking care of you. Not only that, but they will be using the highest rated medical technology during your procedure. You will be hard pressed to find finer results anywhere else in the entire world.

What Can You Expect After Your Procedure?

Once your da Vinci prostatectomy has been completed, you will more than likely be able to leave the hospital after one day. The cutting edge surgery allows for a minimized loss of blood and tissue damage. You will also be able to get back to your normal day-to-day activities faster. Not only will your impotence rate drop to two percent, you will also have a better chance of getting back to your normal urinary functions, which cannot be said of all other surgical options.

Paying for the Procedure

The overall cost for your prostate cancer surgery will mostly depend on the type of insurance that you have. There is a chance that you might have to completely pay your deductible before your insurance company will take care of your prostatectomy. In any case, our knowledgeable patient advocates will do everything that they can to assist you with benefit verification and insurance preauthorization. miVIP accepts a majority of PPO insurance plans. Even if you do not have the funds necessary for your prostate cancer surgery, we will work with you to create a fair and affordable financial plan.
