A prostate cancer diagnosis means navigating a maze of confusing treatment choices. These may include radiation treatments, cryosurgery, conventional open or robotic prostatectomy or careful monitoring of the cancer without immediate treatment ("active surveillance").
Most men with a prostate cancer diagnosis share a number of serious concerns. The main concern should be treating, or removing, the cancerous prostate to stop the carcinoma from spreading. Another worry is how well bowel, urinary, and sexual functions will recover after treatment; and concerns about dealing with the rigors of the prostate cancer treatment itself. There is also the very important question of where to have the selected prostate cancer treatment and by whom.
No one method of treatment is universally "best" for everyone; each treatment method has its advantages and drawbacks. However, we believe that the ART™ technique of robotic surgery offers very significant advantages that make it the right choice for many patients. Our treatment addresses your most important concerns.
