Unrealistic Hopes For Robot – Assisted Prostate Surgery
According to the latest study published in the "Journal of Urology", men have unrealistic hopes for robot-assisted prostate surgery.
Robot-assisted prostate surgery, a study finds, is not really doing much more for prostate cancer sufferers than just the regular surgery. Also the level of expectation of results that men have is probably much too high based on the results of what the surgery can do.
What the researchers and the study proved was that basically it was the same recovering time for men whether they had their prostates removed during traditional or robotic surgery. Duke University Medical Center prostate surgeon Dr. Judd Moul led the research, and their research information can be found online in the "Journal of Urology."
