This lecture will encompass the learning experience I have had over my 14,000 RALP cases. We will present an evidence based prospective data collection and analysis of RALP outcomes. We will describe evolution of technique for continence, potency and cancer control. Each technical innovation has led to an improvement in overall outcome. New technologies such as single port robots have also now entered the picture and are presenting a new learning curve.
1. Understand the key outcome metrics for RALP
2. Understand the technical nuances of the operation
3. Analyze the key patient factors that influence RALP outcomes
