I had my robotic surgery last December at RWJH Cancer institute with Dr. Kim. The results were fantastic. Nom incontinence after only a couple of days, no impotance. Most importantly, i have had two follow-up PSA's (March and June) with non-detectable readings. I was VERY pleased with Dr Kim's work.
I would be happy to discuss with you off-line if you would like me to email you.
