Robotic Urologic Surgery

On 14th September, TVI presented a report on the implementation of a radical prostatectomy (prostate removal) using the Da Vinci robotic surgery system, the first and only equipment of its kind available in Portugal. The report includes video of the surgery performed by Dr. Kris Maes, a Belgian urologist and expert in robotic surgery, recently integrated into the team at the Hospital da Luz. In addition, the Head of the Department of Urology, Dr. Vilhena-Ayres, and Dr. Virgílio Vaz discuss the characteristics and advantages of robotic surgery in urological procedures, particularly in the case of prostate cancer.
