Prostate Treatments and Robotic Surgery 2 of 2
Surgical robots are being increasingly used to lend a helping hand to surgeons as they treat a variety of medical conditions, including those caused by prostate cancer. In this two-part program, Dr. Michael Naslund and Dr. James Borin discuss the diagnosis and wide range of treatment options available for prostate cancer as well as those treatment options available for benign (non-cancerous) prostate enlargement.
Part two of this two-part program addresses the following topics:
- Robot Assisted Surgery - How it works
- Minimally invasive approach to prostate removal
- Which patients benefit most
- Other robot-assisted surgeries
Dr. James Borin is the director of robotic surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center and an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
