Baptist Health International Conference Series: Robotic Prostectomy Update
A radical prostatectomy is used if testing shows that the cancer has not spread outside the prostate. Following surgery, the stage of the cancer can be determined based on how far it has spread. Robot-assisted prostatectomy may be suited to younger men in good health who have a small prostate and an early stage cancer.
General Surgeons, General Practitioners, Urologists, Obstetrics and Gynecologists, Hospitalists, Nurses and all other interested healthcare professionals.
- Compare the pros and cons of robot assisted radical prostatectomy and open radical prostatectomy.
- Analyze data and identify patients who’s quality of life would improve from robotic prostatectomy.
