Urologic Robotic Surgery - Dr Herb Ruckle

Men needing surgery for prostate cancer or anyone with urologic conditions can have a quicker recovery and faster return to normal activities with da Vinci robotic surgery.  Our surgeons specialize in:

  • Robotic prostate cancer surgery

  • Partial nephrectomy for removal of kidney tumors
  • Bladder cancer surgery
  • Treatment of enlarged prostate and renal cysts

Our surgeons do more robotic surgeries each year than any other teaching hospital west of the Mississippi. We specialize in caring for the whole person, not just a diagnosis. Patients have better outcomes because they have a:

  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return to daily activities
  • Less pain
  • Smaller scars
  • Less blood loss
  • Lower risk of unwanted side effects

For men having robotic prostatectomy, there is also a reduced risk of incontinence and impotence. Click here for information on Sex After Prostate Removal

Seven-eight months ago, I couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs. I’ve been able to take my children to Disneyland and keep up with them. That’s a big difference. It’s just a wonderful feeling.
