Urology robot surgery


One of the most progressive surgery methods. Our St. Zdislava hospital is one of a few facilities using robot in Czech Republic and Europe. The team of doctors is well experienced with that as they performed over 3000 robotic surgeries.

Advantages of robotic surgery:

  • minimal blood losses
  • gentle handling of tissue and minimal scarring short hospital stay
  • relatively fast surgery
  • minimal impact on sexual functions in males

Operations using the daVinci robot

  • radical prostatectomy - surgical removal of all or part of the prostate gland, due to benign conditions that cause urinary retention, as well as prostate cancer.
  • partial nephrectomy - surgical removal of a kidney tumor along with a thin rim of normal kidney, with the two aims of curing the cancer and preserving as much normal kidney as possible.
  • pyeloplasty adrenal - surgical reconstruction or revision of the renal pelvis to drain and decompress the kidney.
  • gland removal
  • reconstruction of the ureter after accidents
  • bariatric surgery - to facilitate weight loss

Most patients operated with the daVinci system underwent radical prostate removal due to malignant tumours. Over 300 such operations are performed per year in our facility. This is more than in the largest urology departments in the Czech Republic.

The fundamental difference between the robotic and classical method is the continuation of a good quality life after the surgery. The patient stays in the hospital four days after the radical prostatectomy surgery is performed with the daVinci robotic system. Then the patient goes home with a urinary catheter which is removed in an outpatient procedure approx. eight days after the surgery. Than the patient urinates alone and controls the sphincter of the urinary bladder.
