Robotic or laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy is become polpular because of several benefits that the patient has when compare to open surgery. Worldwide for prostatic cancer, robotic surgery is the most popular approach today. In United States, nearly 60% of radical prostatectomies are performed robotically. Prostate is a difficult area to reach for open surgery as the bony frame of the hip (pelvis) reduces the access. Robot makes the work easier for the surgeon thus benefiting the patient.

What Is Prostate Cancer ?
Prostate is gland that is located at the base of urinary bladder among men. This gland enlarges with age, which is called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Rarely cancer can occur in this gland. This is usually a disease of old age (>60 years).These are very slow growing tumors. It is said that ‘a patient is more likely to die with prostate cancer than because of it.’
Prostate cancer patients most commonly develop blockage to urine flow or blood in urine. However, people who perform a blood test called PSA on yearly basis may reach a diagnosis before the the cancer blocks the flow of urine. Prostate cancer spreads mainly to back bones and when this happens patients develop back pain.
Diagnosis is reached based on ultrasound and biopsy. Prostate specific antigen (PSA) in blood can give good idea about the aggressiveness of the disease. The planning of treatment depends on the features on biopsy and PSA levels, in addition to many other factors.
