The da Vinci Robotic System

Many Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) prostate cancer patients can benefit from a new, less invasive approach to surgery called the daVinci Robotic System. With the robotic system, HCI prostate cancer surgeons use a computer console in the operating room to control small instruments that access a patient’s prostate through five tiny cuts in the abdomen.

Benefits of da Vinci Robotic System vs. Conventional Prostate Cancer Surgery

  • Less nerve and bladder damage
  • More complete tumor removal
  • Smaller incisions
  • Faster recovery time

HCI surgeons have performed more than 1,000 da Vinci procedures, more than any other hospital in the Intermountain West.
