Every day humans are in need of help from robots. David B. Samadi, MD, the Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City is showing and explaining how a prostate removal surgery is performed with the help of a robotic system called the da Vinci Robot. Using this system is a less traumatic and minimally invasive alternative for treating and removing prostate cancer. The da Vinci robotic system enables surgeons to overcome many of the shortcomings of both open prostatectomy and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy.
