Robotic-assisted prostatectomy using the da Vinci X surgical robot

Should you require surgery, The Park Hospital is the only UK private hospital beyond London to own a da Vinci X Robotic Surgical System and you may be offered a robotic prostatectomy.

The robot consists of a series of mechanical arms controlled by a highly trained surgeon sitting at a console on the other side of the room. This console translates the surgeon’s hand movements in real-time to the instruments attached to the robotic arms, while allowing him to view the operation with unprecedented clarity via a high-definition, 3D video feed.

The primary advantage of robotic surgery over open surgery is it allows surgeons to conduct operations through just the tiniest of incisions in the skin. In contrast to traditional ‘open’ surgery for prostate removal this technique is proven to cause less bleeding, less scarring, a shorter stay in hospital and a quicker recovery.

Based at The Park Hospital, Nottingham Prostate Centre has access to a dedicated Oncology unit providing chemotherapy and radiotherapy services in partnership with Genesis Care. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments are delivered by a team of educated and experienced specialists who provide 24/7 support during therapy.

A robotic prostatectomy, which might also be called a robotic radical prostatectomy, or a robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, is a type of keyhole surgery to remove all or part of your diseased prostate performed with the help of a robotic system.

When we refer to robotic surgery, or robotics-assisted surgery, we don’t mean an operation performed by a robot. The procedure is still performed by your consultant urological surgeon. The robotic element is simply a technical surgical platform that your surgeon uses to help them be as precise as possible. 

The da Vinci X surgical system

Our specialists use a robot called the da Vinci X surgical system to perform a robotic prostatectomy at our centre in Nottingham. This is cutting-edge machine designed to make prostate surgery as successful as possible. 

The robot consists of a series of mechanical arms that are linked to a console controlled by your surgeon. The system translates your consultant's hand movements in real time, so that the robotic arms move in the same way. Your consultant is able to observe what is happening via high-definition, 3D images in real time. They can use the da Vinci robotic system to make smaller and more accurate movements than possible with their own hands. This allows them to be more precise than ever. 

Accessing private healthcare is easy, whether you choose to pay directly or use private medical insurance.

If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.

If you have insurance, we can arrange a direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
