Dr. Mini Varghese is an Expert at Performing Robotic Surgery


The DaVinci Robotic Surgery system is a robot-assisted surgical system that allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive complex surgeries with extreme accuracy and upgraded precision. One of our urologists at Z Urology, Dr. Mini Varghese is an expert at this type of surgery. In fact, Dr. Varghese finished her urologic surgical training at the University of Rochester Medical Center. This type of training prepared her to use minimally invasive procedures to treat enlarged prostates, kidney stones and bladder tumors. Z Urology is here to help any patients that require a Urologist in South Florida.


What is DaVinci Robotic Surgery?


The DaVinci Robotic Surgery system is the upgrade if surgical techniques that allows our urologist to perform extremely precise actions. These systems upgrade the user’s dexterity, precision and accuracy, visuals and much more. Multiple visual aids are present in front of the urologist. Dr. Varghese will be comfortably seated within a chair. She will be directing the machine to perform the precise actions with tools.

Machine systems have upgraded the quality of surgeries. Minimally invasive surgeries have become that much easier compared to the past. Monitors with cameras can give high definition visual aids while the machine arms follow the movements of the urologist with perfect angles.


What Type of Procedures Use Robotic Surgery?


Robotic Surgery systems have uses in all types of surgeries. However, when pertaining to a urologist, a prostatectomy is the most common form of surgery that uses a robotic system. This is also referred to as a RALP. RALP, otherwise known as a Robot Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy, is a type of surgery often used to treat men with prostate cancer. Surgical removal of the prostate gland (and some of the tissue around it) is one of the treatment options for early-stage prostate cancer. With the prostate gland just below the urinary bladder and surrounded by important nerves for sexual function, removal requires great care to maximize the chance for a cure and maintain continence and sexual function.

Understanding Prostate Cancer & RALP

Understanding Prostate Cancer & RALP


Advancements in medical technology have led to some of the most amazing developments for convenience and safety for patients. One specific technology targeted toward Prostate Cancer is the Robot Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy, otherwise known as RALP. It is important that if you have any early symptoms of Prostate Cancer, to contact a professional Urologist at Z Urology immediately. RALP makes use of robotic arms that fine tune surgeon’s hand movements into perfect precision. This innovation in medical technology has brought an entirely new enhanced version of surgery. Allowing doctors to focus on their vision, control and dexterity, then channel them into RALP to complete perfection.


Early Symptoms of Prostate Cancer


It is imperative to your health to contact a Coral Springs Urologist at Z Urology if you have any early symptoms of prostate cancer. Early symptoms of prostate cancer include:

  • Trouble urinating or painful urination
  • Decreased force in the stream of urine
  • Blood in the urine
  • Blood in the semen
  • Chronic pain in the lower back, hips or thighs
  • Discomfort in the pelvic area
  • Bone pain
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Swelling/Weakness in legs or difficulty walking

Prostate cancer is most easily treated in its earliest stages. About 85% of men with prostate cancer are recognized in its most early stages allowing for treatment. However, if prostate cancer progresses to serious levels, then it becomes very dangerous.


RALP & the da Vinci System


Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy is the newest solution to prostate cancer surgery. RALP works through the use of robotic arms that calculate precision movements based off of the surgeon’s hands. The da Vinci System, under the use of Z Urology, features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate much greater than the human wrist. Innovative systems such as these allow for new levels of dexterity and control for the expert surgeons and urologists located at Z Urology.

If you or someone you know has early symptoms of Prostate Cancer, inform them about Z Urology. We have locations in Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach.
