Humera Surgical SocietyHow to Give

Robotic-assisted simple prostatectomy performed by Dr. Lance Hampton at Virginia Commonwealth University using a modified technique in which the space of Retzius is not entered prior to cystotomy. Preliminary data suggests that this modification may reduce operative time and even potentially blood loss. Results will be presented at the World Congress of Endourology in London in October of 2015.

This procedure is most beneficial for individuals with benign prostatic hyperplasia with a very large gland size.
