Some Patients Paying for Their Prostate Cancer Surgery for the Rest of Their Lives

ntionally to stay the course with the radical approach," said Vorstman. "The common post-operative complications associated with this radical surgical approach are impotence and incontinence (limp and leaking)—complications that result in a significant negative impact on QoL not only for the man, but his wife and their partnership."

Dr. Vorstman contends that surgeons eventually recognized this disposition for complications after surgical removal of the prostate, and refined their radical approach to prostate cancer treatment and developed the "nerve sparing" technique in attempts to lessen this propensity for "limp and leaking."

However, he said, this "nerve sparing" approach for prostate cancer excision did not realize the expected great improvement in results with better preservation of erectile function and urinary continence.

This dilemma, according to Dr. Vorstman, then led some surgeons to create "new" definitions for impotence and incontinence so that their radical surgery was now associated with acceptable levels of these complications.

Subsequently, when the biotech industry found a use for their robotic machines in prostate cancer treatment, technology firms soon discovered that they could report even more impressive post operative results.

"These impressive treatment results for radical surgery/robotics were achieved through the coupling of these spurious definitions for limp and leaking with more misleading information," he contends. "This so called data for the non FDA trialed treatment option was then spiced with unbridled and unabashed marketing and propelled into the forefront of prostate cancer treatment as some quasi gold standard."
