Robotic Surgery


Westchester Medical Group offers unique expertise in treating patients using the da Vinci® system. Dr. Boczko is fellowship trained in robotic and laparoscopic urology and is a leader in this field. There are only a handful of other urologists who have similarly mastered the complex high tech skills required to do both robotic and laparoscopic surgery. Dr. Boczko has presented many papers and videos at national and international conferences and has garnered several honors and awards for his pioneering work.

The da Vinci® Surgical System is a robotic surgical system consisting of three main components:

The InSite® Vision System which provides the surgeon with a true minimally invasive 3-D view of the surgical field.

The Surgical Cart that includes the EndoWrist® Instruments. The EndoWrist Instruments are designed to mimic the movement of the human hands, wrists and fingers.

The Surgeon Console which contains the master controls that the surgeon uses to manipulate the EndoWrist Instruments.


What are the benefits of using the da Vinci Surgical System®

For the surgeon, the ability to perform complex minimally invasive procedures as if they were performing open surgery procedures without the fatigue experienced in a long procedure. For the patient, numerous benefits common in existing laparoscopic procedures including reduced bleeding, less pain, smaller risk of internal scarring, shorter hospital stay and faster recovery are possible.

EndoWrist Instruments

Reproduce exact movements of the human hand, wrists and fingers.

Extensive range of motion allows precision suturing, dissection and tissue manipulation.

Dual 3-chip digital cameras take surgery "inside" the patient.

The only system with true 3-D vision offers depth of field and resolution.

3-D image aligned over the master controls provides natural hand-eye coordination that is inherent in open surgery.

The da Vinci Surgical System from Intuitive Surgical, Inc. is enabling the next generation of surgery. Incorporating the latest advancemet n robtic andomputer technology, the da Vinci Surgical System is the only operative surgical robot that has been deemed safe and effective by the United States Food and Drug Administration for actually performing surgery.

The da Vinci Surgical System can be used for a wide variety of surgical procedures within multiple specialties.

Robotic Prostate Surgery Patient Benefits

With its 3-D view, the da Vinci® Surgical System aids the surgeon in more easily identifying vital anatomy such as the delicate nerves surrounding the prostate. The EndoWrist® Instruments provide the surgeon with dexterity not available using conventional laparoscopic instruments to perform a delicate and precise surgical dissection and reconstruction of the bladder and urethra.

The da Vinci® Surgical System enhances the advantages of laparoscopic surgery, which are:

  • less bleeding
  • less pain
  • less risk of internal scarring
  • less time in the hospital and faster recuperation

da Vinci Prostatectomy

The da Vinci Surgical System will enable a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery! The da Vinci System is the only operative robotic system cleared for Radical Prostatectomy procedure.

The American Cancer Society estimates there are 180,000-2000,000 newly diagnosed cases of prostate cancer annually. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men in the United States with approximately 40,000 men dying of it each year. Prostate removal is the most common procedure performed on men with prostate cancer and is typically performed through large, open surgical incisions, which often result in lengthy and uncomfortable patient recovery. There is a significant risk of impotence and incontinence with prostatectomies.

Other urologic robotic surgeries performed by the da Vinci Surgical System are:

Abdominal Testicular Resection
Donor Nephrectomy
Lymphadenectomy
Nephrectomy
Pyeloplasty
Radical Prostatectomy
Renal Cystectomy
Urerteroureterostomy
Ureter Harvest
Varicocele
