Bladder cancer is the 5th most frequent tumor in developed countries. Tobacco is the main risk factor. The signs and symptoms of this type of tumor are the appearance of haematuria (blood in the urine) and urine pain. For diagnosis, tests such as ultrasound, urinary cytology and urethrocystoscopy are used. Smoking is the main risk factor for bladder cancer.
Robotic radical cystoprostatectomy
Minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the bladder from the urine, prostate and surrounding lymph nodes using the Da Vinci robot. This robot reproduces the movements of the surgeon and amplifies its accuracy. Incisions are smaller, blood loss is minimized thus allowing a faster recovery with less pain and a shorter hospital stay.
