    Biography

      Vipul Patel, MD, FACS completed his medical school education at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX.  He then completed his residency and fellowship training at the University of Miami in Florida.  Subsequently, Dr. Patel served as director of the Robotic Surgery Program at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, prior to joining Advent Health Celebration. Dr. Patel is board certified by the American Urological Association and is the medical director of the Global Robotics Institute at Advent Health Celebration and medical director of the Advent Health Cancer Institute Urologic Oncology Program.  He is a professor of Urology at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine in Orlando, Florida, and a clinical associate professor of Urology at Nova Southeastern University, also in Orlando. He serves as an honorary professor at the University of Milan, Korea University and Ricardo Palma University in Lima, Peru, and was recently made an honorary professor of the Russian Academy of Science. He is the founder of the International Prostate Cancer Foundation (IPCF) and a founding member of the Society of Robotic Surgery.  He is the editor emeritus of The Journal of Robotic Surgery and editor of the first-ever robotic urology textbook. He leads one of the world's most experienced robotic surgery teams and travels around the world to educate physicians and care for patients. Dr. Patel is world-renowned for his contribution to the field of robotic surgery and prostate cancer. Dr Patel is the most experienced robotic surgeon in the world and has personally performed nearly 14,000 robotic prostatectomies for the treatment of prostate cancer. Dr. Patel has developed techniques in robotic surgery that have translated to improve patient care and outcomes. His innovations have helped to improve cancer treatment and return of early urinary continence and sexual function. His contributions have been recognized worldwide through publications, professorships and training courses. He has traveled the globe lecturing and teaching. He has educated thousands of surgeons in robotic surgical techniques. He has started robotic surgery programs or performed surgery throughout the United States and in countries, including India, China, England, Sweden, Belgium, Turkey, Australia and South Korea. He currently serves as president of the Florida Urologic Society and Past president and Managing Director of the Society of Robotic Surgery.


    Abstract

    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.

    Learning Objectives:

    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
