I'm in a West Michigander in a similar boat. Have appt. with Dr. Menon next Wed. Goin' with experience myself and have the same trouble on this side of the state. Dr. Lane is an MD and PhD with Spectrum, and only has done 300 robotic surgeries, though his manager states "outcomes are good." Haven't really heard of any super stars on our side of the state, but that doesn't mean there aren't good surgeons. Maybe their marketing isn't as good?
I don't know. (sigh!)
Also, see comments on my post asking for Dr. Mani Menon input. One guy recommended Stricker, I believe.
Good luck. I'll keep watching for input as well.
