When choosing robotic prostatectomy
as the treatment, many men have anxieties related to incontinence, sexual function, return to work, and going home with a urinary catheter.

Speaking at a news conference, Yiannaki said the state was buying private sector services in relation with heart and eye conditions, and laparoscopic and robotic prostatectomy
As part of a process improvement initiative, we designed, implemented, and assessed the impact of pre-surgical education classes for patients scheduled to undergo robotic prostatectomy
. Our aim was to both enhance patient access to important procedural information related to their surgery, and also limit the need for the repeated dissemination of information during patient calls to the office.
He concluded that even though it is unfair to compare the early learning curve of robotic prostatectomy
with the established learning curve of open and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, 'one could confidently say that the oncological (and urinary/sexual) outcomes are similar or better (using the da Vinci system), but definitely not worse'.
However, the growing popularity of robotic prostatectomy
has occurred largely without convincing evidence to demonstrate that it has clear advantages over open surgery, says Andrew Stephenson, MD, director of the Center of Urologic Oncology at Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute.

has indeed overtaken open surgery as the gold standard for the removal of prostate cancer.
