Robotic Prostate Surgery at Mount Sinai

Physicians at The Mount Sinai Hospital’s Milton and Carroll Petrie Department of Urology continue to innovate and expand treatment options for patients with prostate cancer. Our Precision UrologyTM approach involves integration of multiple variables and imaging data for diagnosis and treatment decision making, so men with prostate cancer can be assured of our commitment to comprehensive and personalized care. Dr. Ash Tewari, Chairman of the Department of Urology, is a renowned leader in robotic prostate surgery, considered among the best robotic prostate cancer surgeons in the world. He has performed more than 5,500 robotic prostatectomies, making him one of the most experienced robotic surgeons. 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.

Dr. Ketan K. Badani, Vice Chair of Urology and Robotic Operations has performed nearly 4000 robotic procedures in his career and is also one of the preeminent practitioners in the world for robotic prostatectomy.
