Are results with Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy better?

We believe that the most important determinant of surgical outcome is the quality of the surgeon. Robotic instrumentation aids in performing the procedure, but cannot compensate for poor technique or lack of experience. In most cases we believe that the chances of curing the cancer, maintaining urinary continence, and preserving erectile will be similar when performed by experienced open or laparoscopic surgeons. Extensive experience with open surgical techniques does speed learning of the robotic assisted technique.
