Cutting-edge urologic surgery at Chinese Gen

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The advanced urologic robotic surgery program at the Robocare Surgical Center of Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center merges a skilled team of robotic surgery experts with the country’s finest robotic surgical system, the Da Vinci Xi Dual Console Robotic System.

Utilizing minimally invasive techniques, robotic surgical technology offers exceptional precision for intricate and complex urological procedures, such as:

  • Radical Prostatectomy (prostate removal)
  • Partial and Radical nephrectomy (kidney/tumor removal)
  • Dismembered Pyeloplasty (urine blockage repair)
  • Radical Cystectomy with ileal conduit or neobladder reconstruction (urinary bladder surgery)
  • Ureteroneocystostomy (reimplantation of the ureter into the bladder)
  • Pyelolithotomy (removal of stone in the renal pelvis)
  • Urinary Bladder Diverticulectomy (removal of abnormal pouch of the bladder)

For instance, In prostatectomy, the adept surgeons operating with the da Vinci surgical robot achieve enhanced precision, eliminate  tremors, enhance clinical outcomes, shorten recovery period, and minimize damage to the vital nerves affecting urinary and erectile functions.

In contrast to traditional surgical approaches, robotic-assisted surgery integrates the expertise of a seasoned surgeon with the accuracy and precision of cutting-edge technology.

In addition to enhancing clinical results, the benefits to the patient include reduced pain, lower blood loss, decreased infection risks, minimal scarring, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery periods. Most patients can resume normal activities within 3 weeks, a significant improvement over the typical 8-week recovery period associated with standard open surgery.
