Patient outcomes are directly related to surgeon experience.
Outcomes after treatment for prostate cancer are not well reported. The data listed are outcomes from our patients after a robotic prostatectomy. We have separated our outcomes into four categories:
Quality of Life (as related to urinary function)
It is not uncommon for patients preoperatively to be concerned about their postoperative quality of life as it relates to urinary symptoms. The data above demonstrates that more patients report a higher satisfaction with their urinary symptoms after prostate removal due to relief of obstructive symptoms. 96% of patients are satisfied with their urinary quality of life 2 years postoperative compared to 80% preoperative.
(Based on a survey of 450 patients at various stages of cancer care.)
