Robotic Surgery for Prostate Cancer

Performing the Most Robotic Prostate Cancer Surgeries in Metro Denver

At the Colorado Center for Robotic Surgery at Sky Ridge, we are proud to perform more da Vinci® robotic prostatectomies than any other hospital in the Denver metro area. Our expertise, skilled surgeons and multi-disciplinary care team can provide you and your loved ones with the peace of mind you need before, during and after surgery.

The urologic surgeons who lead our team are experts in their field and will provide you with options to make the most effective decision for you and your family.

Surgical Profile: Prostatectomy

Most commonly used for prostate cancer, this involves removing the prostate and the seminal vesicles, and then reattaching the urethra to the bladder.

Of Note: One of the first procedures ever performed with da Vinci®, the prostatectomy (which Sky Ridge's Dr. Eigner has been performing since 2004) paved the way for surgeons into the robotic era.

Benefits: Traditionally requires a large scar and highly precise work done in a deep cavity. With da Vinci®’s 3-D vision and 10-fold magnification, surgeons have dramatic visual improvement. Combined with the high precision and maneuverability of the robotic system, surgeons can perform the minute, sensitive cutting and suturing through tiny incisions with greater ease, avoiding nerve damage that can lead to life-altering incontinence or erectile dysfunction. Average hospital stay is reduced from three nights to one.
