da Vinci® Offers Minimally Invasive Option for Bladder Cancer Treatment

Cystectomy is traditionally performed using an open approach, which requires a large abdominal incision. Another approach, conventional laparoscopy, is less invasive, but limits the doctor’s dexterity, visualization and control, compared to open surgery.

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat bladder cancer, you may be a candidate for a breakthrough, minimally invasive approach – da Vinci® Surgery. da Vinci Surgery uses state-of-the-art technology to help your doctor perform a more precise operation than conventional instrumentation allows.


da Vinci Cystectomy incorporates the best techniques of open surgery – including comprehensive cancer control – and applies them to a robotic-assisted, minimally invasive approach. da Vinci Cystectomy offers patients several potential benefits over open surgery, including:

  • Less risk of death
  • Less blood loss
  • Lower risk of major complications
  • Less narcotic pain medicine needed
  • Less use of IV feeding tube
  • Quicker recovery of bowel function
  • Shorter hospital stay
