Robotic Prostatectomy
 
Robotic Prostatectomy

Besides drastically decreasing pain and blood loss, the robotic prostatectomy greatly enhances the technical aspects of the procedure because the surgeon has the option of up to 10x magnification which greatly facilitates the nerve-sparing option which is now preferred in most patients who have early diagnosis of prostate cancer. The surgeons on the Tulane Urology robotic team not only provide this state-of-the-art option here in New Orleans but also have traveled extensively to teach this new art of surgery in several states around the country.
