lity of developing the disease. Of these, age is the strongest risk factor, and as life spans continue to increase, more men are surviving to an age at which prostate cancer is more prevalent. The chances of developing prostate cancer increases quickly after reaching age 50, and about 2 out of every 3 prostate cancers are found in men over the age of 65. The three treatment approaches to prostate cancer are 'watchful waiting,' radiation, or surgery, depending on patient age, and how advanced the disease is.

Radical Prostatectomy

Radical prostatectomy is an effective means of eradicating prostate cancer by surgically removing the entire prostate and surrounding tissue. It is a complex procedure because the prostate gland is located deep inside the pelvis and is intimately associated with delicate nerves that control erections and bladder control. Historically, radical prostatectomy has been performed as an open procedure requiring surgical precision to preserve these important functions. Robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy emerged with the introduction of systems such as the da Vinci Surgical System (a product of Intuitive Surgical, Inc.), which is minimally invasive and enables a high degree of precision. Since 2000, over 900 of such systems have been installed in hospitals worldwide, of which more than 700 are located in North America. Estimates show that more than 90,000 radical prostatectomies were performed in 2007 in the United States. Currently it is estimated that more than 70% of radical prostatectomies are performed robotically.

Post-Operative Incontinence and Erectile Dysfunction

Urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction are very common side effects following open or robotic radical prostatectomy. Temporary loss of bladder control occurs in most men. While most eventually regain full control, this can take up to a year. This extended lack of urinary
