Robotic vs traditional sugery for cystectomy

2 months 3 weeks ago #56973 by sara.anne
Reports have hit the national news today about a caution for patients about robotic surgery for cancer treatment.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/01/health/fda-warning-robotic-surgery-mastectomy/index.html

The data cited do not mention bladder cancer, where robotic surgery for bladder removal/reconstruction is often used. Those considering cystectomy often have questions about which might be better. Here is a recent comparison which says.....the results of either surgery are the same!
