Robotic Surgery Q&A

What is robotic surgery?

During robotic surgery at Pasadena Urological Medical Group, your provider uses robotic arms and a console to complete surgery on your bladder, prostate gland, kidneys, or nearby tissues. Dr. Chandrasoma is the only fellowship-trained robotic surgeon in Pasadena, and he’s highly trained in his field.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

The main benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Superior precision and accuracy
  • Smaller incisions
  • Less bleeding
  • Shorter recovery times
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Highly effective results
  • Less scarring

Robotic surgery allows your urologist to complete important procedures using the most advanced, revolutionary technology and techniques available and provide outstanding results with minimal risks.

Is robotic surgery right for me?

The Pasadena Urological Medical Group team lets you know if you’re a candidate for robotic surgery after asking about your symptoms and medical history. 

They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may recommend blood tests, urine tests, ultrasound, cystoscopy, biopsies, or other diagnostic procedures. 

You might need surgery if you have an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, cancer of the kidneys or bladder, or other problems in the urinary tract or reproductive system in men. 

Symptoms of these issues include blood in your urine, blood in semen, changes in your urinary habits, pelvic pain, and pain with urination, among others. 

How should I prepare for the procedure?

It’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions before you undergo robotic surgery at Pasadena Urological Medical Group. They may ask you to stop taking certain medicines and arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure. Don’t smoke, and avoid foods and drinks the morning of surgery if asked to.

What should I expect during and after robotic surgery?

During robotic surgery at Pasadena Urological Medical Group, you receive anesthesia to help you fall asleep or relax. Your specialist also numbs the treatment area. 

They make a tiny incision and use robotic arms controlled with a console to complete surgery. Your surgeon may repair, remove, or replace tissues before closing your incisions.

Afterward, it’s important to get plenty of rest. Take medicines as directed by your surgeon, and keep the surgical site clean. Avoid strenuous activity until permitted by your doctor, and attend follow-up visits to ensure proper healing.
