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.
