Minimally Invasive Cancer Surgery

Unlike traditional open surgery, in which the physician makes a long incision to access the anatomy, minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions, resulting in faster recovery and less pain for the patient.

Removal of Cancerous Tumors

Minimally invasive surgery removes cancerous tumors and lymph nodes, while sparing the patient from unnecessary tissue damage, pain, and scarring.

Minimally invasive surgery may be used to treat:

  • Bladder Cancer
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Gynecologic Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Throat and Lung Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer

Dr. Kevan Sternberg, a Urologic surgeon at Sisters Hospital, has performed several Prostatectomy, Radical Prostatectomy with Bilateral Pelvic Lymph Node Dissection (both are prostate cancer surgeries) and Particial Nephrectomy (removal of a tumor and section of a kidney).

daVinci® Surgical System

Minimally invasive surgery for the removal of cancerous tumors may involve the use of the daVinci® Surgical System, a surgical robot. The system has three robotic arms, which are inserted into three small incisions on the body. Two arms hold surgical instruments and the third holds a camera. Sitting at a computer console, the surgeon guides the movement of the robotic arms and is able to operate with more precision and with better range of motion.
