Continuing in Varese: The Experience with RALP and Prosthesis SimultaneouslyMedical innovation progresses with great determination and expertise in Varese, where urologists Federico Deho’ and Gabriele Antonini are revolutionizing the surgical approach to the treatment of prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. This groundbreaking procedure combines radical prostatectomy performed with the Da Vinci robotic system and the simultaneous implantation of a three-component hydraulic penile prosthesis via a minimally invasive infrapubic approach.

Radical prostatectomy is a surgical intervention aimed at removing the prostate in cases of carcinoma. The use of the Da Vinci robotic system represents a significant advancement, allowing surgeons to operate with unprecedented precision. The Da Vinci system comprises a surgical console where the surgeon sits and controls robotic arms equipped with miniaturized surgical instruments and a high-definition camera. This technology enables more precise movements and a three-dimensional view of the operative area, reducing the risks of complications and improving post-operative recovery times.

Simultaneously with the radical prostatectomy, urologists Deho’ and Antonini perform the implantation of a three-component hydraulic penile prosthesis. This device, consisting of cylinders inserted into the corpora cavernosa of the penis, a fluid-filled reservoir placed near the bladder, and a pump located in the scrotum, allows for the natural and discreet achievement and maintenance of an erection. The minimally invasive infrapubic approach, which involves a minimal incision, further reduces healing times and post-operative complications, significantly enhancing patients’ quality of life.

This cutting-edge procedure is the result of close collaboration among highly specialized professionals. Urologists Paolo Capogrosso and Nicolò Schifano have made significant contributions to the success of these interventions, working in synergy with Deho’ and Antonini to ensure maximum efficacy and safety. The combination of their expertise has further refined the technique, offering patients a comprehensive and innovative treatment.

The pioneering experience in Varese with the combination of RALP and hydraulic penile prosthesis implantation represents a major breakthrough in the field of urological surgery. Thanks to the dedication and expertise of urologists Federico Deho’, Gabriele Antonini, Paolo Capogrosso, and Nicolò Schifano, patients can benefit from less invasive procedures, faster recovery times, and a significant improvement in quality of life. This integrated approach opens new perspectives for the treatment of prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction, demonstrating once again how technology and collaboration can make a difference in modern medicine.
