Prostate removal: View a live operation

OR Live logo

Robotically-assisted radical prostatectomy (prostate removal) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

 

Through our partnership with OR-live.com, the leaders in healthcare webcasting, we are able to provide access to their archive of live operations, broadcast from leading hospitals in the USA.

 

We feature a recording of a live webcast of a robotically-assisted radical prostatectomy (prostate removal) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Endoscopic surgery, a less-invasive alternative to traditional open surgery, uses small incisions, or ports, for the insertion of an optical device (endoscope) and surgical instruments. Compared to traditional open surgery for removal of the prostate, the endoscopic technique reduces blood loss and postoperative pain and allows quicker recovery from prostate surgery.

 

You will need to download and install RealPlayer Basic or RealPlayer Plus to view the webcasts.
