Robotic Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy

This is a pilot study to evaluate the role of RALRP in the management of localized prostate cancer.

To establish a robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy programme at the University of Western Ontario/London Health Sciences Centre and to critically evaluate the role of this programme in the management of localized prostate cancer in surgical candidates Details of surgical procedure, operative outcome, patient outcome including quality of life will be collected.
