Hi Everyone,
David B. Samadi M.D., Mount Sinai Medical Center, and Intuitive Surgical will be performing a live robotic surgery on OR Live August 13, 2008, at 5:00 pm ET. The webcast will discuss the benefits of a robotic prostate surgery as compared to laparoscopic surgical and open methods. Dr. Samadi will highlight his unique advanced surgical techniques while using the latest da Vinci surgery technology. A live question and answer session with viewers is also part of the Webcast.

Wow! this was Must See TV! Although geared to surgeons they consistently paused and put things into layman's terms. They took real-time questions for me and others, covered many of the issues covered on this thread and most importantly, actually talked you through an entire DaVinci procedure, but also very candidly discussing the other options available.....obviously a promo for DaVinci and Mt Sinai but an EXCEPTIONALLY WELL DONE webcast for someone like myself who was diagnosed with pc less than a month ago...

Thank you for this heads up, and for others, the website will make available rebroadcasts online if you want to view the program.
