Robotic Surgery for BPH/Simple Prostatectomy
If your family doctor has concluded that your benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or lower urinary tract obstruction cannot be treated adequately by medication and if prostate cancer has been ruled out, you may be a good candidate for minimally-invasive surgery. NJCPC&U offers Robotic Simple Prostatectomy as a safe and effective treatment for BPH.
For patients who have very large prostate glands (usually those measuring over 150 grams), Simple Robotic Prostatectomy is a state-of-the-art treatment to remove the portion of the prostate causing the obstruction. The procedure counters the discomfort and risks of open surgery with significant benefits, including:
- Shorter hospital stays (1-2 days compared to up to a week)
- Less pain and minimal blood loss
- Quicker recovery and return to routine activities
