Robotic Prostate Surgery at Mount Sinai

Physicians at The Mount Sinai Hospital’s Milton and Carroll Department of Urology continue to innovate and expand treatment options for patients with prostate cancer. Dr. Ash Tewari, Chairman of the Department of Urology, is a renowned leader in robotic prostate surgery and has performed more than 5,500 robotic prostatectomies, making him one of the most experienced robotic prostate surgeons in the world. In order to minimize the damage to the nerves responsible for erectile function, Dr. Tewari pioneered the performance of a completely athermal technique (no use of cautery or heat energy) during robotic prostatectomy. Also, he developed the total reconstruction technique, in which the support structures of the urinary mechanism are restored following prostate removal, for faster continence recovery. His outcomes are considered gold standard.
