da Vinci Urologic Services
Minimally invasive urologic surgery
Urologic conditions are diseases or disorders that affect the male reproductive organs or the male or female urinary tract. At Oroville Hospital, da Vinci surgery is currently available to address prostate cancer, the second most common cancer diagnosed in men in the United States.

After a prostate cancer diagnosis, a prostatectomy to remove part or all of the prostate gland may be recommended by a physician. This procedure can be challenging as the prostate is surrounded by a bundle of sensitive nerves which control urination and sexual function. Using the da Vinci Surgical System’s visual magnification and 3D imaging capabilities, surgeons are able to navigate the body’s tissues and nerves with precise movements. Patients who undergo a prostatectomy with the da Vinci report a faster return of sexual and urinary function, less blood loss and a shorter hospital stay.
