Robotic Assisted Prostate Surgery Effects on Potency
Hello, my question is about robotic assisted prostate surgery. Have any of the men who have had their prostates operated on this way been interviewed and asked if their ability to have sex has been diminished after their recovery period?
The experience thus far has shown no difference in potency rates when compared with other forms of radical prostatectomy.
