Robotic Prostatectomy

Diagnosed with prostate cancer?

One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Multiple treatment options are available. For men naturally concerned with the side effects of traditional surgery, radiation and proton beam therapy, medical science has developed a new option – Robotic Prostatectomy.

Expertise with Superior Outcomes

The robotic prostate team at McIver Clinic is led by Dr. Vashi, who personally performs the entire operation and coordinates pre- and postoperative care. In addition to providing what most experts believe is the best chance of cancer cure, robotic prostatectomy also provides for excellent functional outcomes, which limits the potential side effects of urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction.

Many patients have the belief that less “invasive” options such as radiation seeds, proton beam or HIFU (high intensity ultrasound) have less side effects than surgery. A well performed robotic prostatectomy challenges that belief and can eliminate some of the long term problems with radiation or other therapies such as difficulty voiding, pain, bleeding and bowel problems.
