Da Vinci® Robotic Prostatectomy
At the Prostate Centre we apply minimally invasive techniques that minimise complications and accelerate postoperative recovery
Robotic prostatectomy in the treatment of prostate cancer makes up for the limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery by providing more precise surgical interventions, especially in the most complex and difficult to access cases. At our centre we only perform open surgery when it is the only possible option.
At the Prostate Centre, with robotic surgery, we obtain a urinary continence rate of close to 100% and the preservation of sexual potency of around 90% when patients are under 65 years of age and, due to the characteristics of the tumour, it allows us to preserve the nerves and vessels on which erection depends in men.
Blood loss during the operation, and therefore the need for transfusions, is 85% less than with open surgery. The Clinic was one of the first centres in Spain to incorporate this technique and currently has an experience of more than 800 patients, one of the largest series in Spain with this procedure.

Prostate surgery with Da Vinci robot for the best patient recovery
Greater recovery of urinary control within the first three months (more than 80% in the first month), due to greater precision in the dissection of the tissues.
Lower blood transfusion rates (85% lower than open surgery), postoperative infections and shorter hospital stay (48-72 hours).
More effective preservation of sexual potency and greater urethral sphincter integrity.
Da Vinci® robotic surgery
Robotic surgery makes up for the limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery, making surgical procedures more comfortable and more precise, especially the most complex and difficult to access procedures.
The Clínica Universidad de Navarra, , which is always at the leading edge of new diagnostic and therapeutic systems, has been using the Da Vinci® robot since 2010 to perform minimally invasive operations.
