Study Design

We employed a retrospective analysis of three of the more commonly performed da Vinci® robotic urology procedures to assess the practicality of these newly established robotic techniques as compared to the more established methods of laparoscopic urologic surgery.We will assess each of the three surgical procedures--radical prostatectomy, pyeloplasty, and partial nephrectomy--with an experimental assessment tool to determine if the da Vinci® robotic technique is a practical approach to urologic surgery when compared to the standard methods of treatment. We will then conclude with a statement on the practical use of each procedure as they pertain to our assessment.
