Robot-Assisted Simple Prostatectomy
In the growing number of options in the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia, robotic-assisted simple prostatectomy has gained significant momentum in recent years. Since the first report in 2008, confirming the feasibility and safety of this treatment modality, several other techniques and modifications have been described. In this chapter, we mainly focus on our institution’s current operative technique of robotic simple prostatectomy and provide a brief review of a few alternative approaches within the literature.
