Top robotic prostate cancer surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, breaks down the most important reasons to choose robotic surgery for prostate cancer. He explains that removing the prostate through robotic prostatectomy involves the complete removal of all prostatic tissue and lymph nodes.

First, the prostate cancer is completely removed and a patient's post-surgery PSA is undetectable. Second, post-surgery diagnostic tools provide a lot of information about prostate cancer staging and scope; much more than is learned before surgery. Third, robotic surgery puts the patient in control. The cancer is eliminated and should it ever return, low-dose radiation is a highly effective back up plan.
