Reconstructive surgery: a logical next step for robotic urology
As recently pointed out by ERUS Chairman Dr. Breda, robotic urologists are constantly widening their field, and the upcoming ERUS22 meeting should show a wide range of procedures beyond oncology. Prof. Hubert John (Winterthur, CH) is one of those robotic urologists taking robotic urology into new directions.
“Since we began using robots in urological surgery twenty years ago, urology has gone through a revolution. When we started we were happy to perform a radical prostatectomy and prove that potency and continence rate were comparable to non-robotic approaches.”
