Robotic prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer is considered by many to be the standard of care for the treatment of clinically localized prostate cancer. Miami urologist, David Robbins, MD is a local expert in the use of the da Vinci robotic system for the treatment of prostate cancer. Dr. Robbins is performing robotic prostatectomy surgery at two convenient locations in Miami including Mount Sinai Medical Center on Miami Beach and Aventura Hospital in Aventura.
Robotic prostatectomy provides the advantage of decreased blood loss, decreased post operative pain and a shorter hospital stay. Outcomes including preservation of erectile function, maintenance of continence and cancer cure are considered a significant improvement over the open technique.
