I live in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota, a suburb of the Twin Cities. My DaVinci surgery was performed at University of Minnesota Fairview Hospital.
Response to Geon
Good question Geon! They did use the robot to do the surgery. The Surgeon "said" that the prostate was removed and both nerves were spared. Other than that who knows what all was removed, spared or saved? They may have removed some other organs for all I know!! I do not claim to be a doctor and have very little confidence in doctors. I was lied to and jerked around by 3 other doctors before I found this one. Things were beginning to "work" with the aid of Viagra, however with the lack of patience that I have, I made the choice to go with the TriMix on occasion too.
Thank you and a complete recovery. All will be well.
