Urology department



The hospital is equipped with excellent facilities, a Da vinci robot prostate surgery can be provided there as in one of the few hospitals, when all the tumor cells are removed precisely and minimal bleeding and postoperative stay are expected. The first operation was done on 19. 08. 2008 .

With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision - similar to traditional laparoskopy



Advantages of prostate robot Surgery:

1) hospitalization is shorter. Surgery is done in the morning and they typically go home after lunch on the first operative day.
2) decreased intraoperative blood loss
3) The third advantage of robotic surgery over open surgery is a reduction in the required postoperative catheterization time.
4) Less pain
