The surgery, performed by Dr. Joseph Chin, and assisted by urologists Dr. Stephen Pautler and Dr. Patrick Luke, was completed April 2 at the University Campus of London Health Sciences Centre.
At a console several feet from the patient, Dr. Chin
was guided by the da Vinci robot's 3- dimensional imaging and removed the prostate by manipulating the robotic arms, which were inserted through small 2-centimetre incisions in the lower abdomen.
The surgery is part of a pilot study at CSTAR
that will evaluate the role of surgical robotics in the management of prostate cancer.Researchers also hope to determine if robotic-assisted surgery will lead to faster recovery of urine control and reduced risk of erectile dysfunction, which are common in patients who have their prostate removed. "Due to the fact that this surgery was robotic- assisted and minimally invasive, the patient can expect a faster recovery, less post-operative pain and less blood loss," says Dr. Joseph Chin, chief of urology at London Health Sciences Centre, associate scientist with Lawson Health Research Institute, and chair of the division of urology at The University of Western Ontario.Chin
adds, " For the surgeon, the robot provides much better visualization, magnification, and improved dexterity, which all translates into greater surgical accuracy overall."
