This presentation discusses the advantages and disadvantages of robotic surgery. The initial goals for a robotic prostatectomy will be discussed as well as patient expectations and outcomes. Robotic surgery has been shown to have achieved good outcomes with regards to pain, incision size, and recovery times. In addition, the blood loss is significantly less when compared to open surgery. Perioperative outcomes, oncologic outcomes (surgical margins and biochemical recurrence rate) as well as functional outcomes (potency and continence) will be detailed.
