I had Di Vinci surgery with Dr Wagner in March of 2009. It went very well. My continence is fine. A few dribbles now and again. But no problems coughing, sneezing, laughing, that kind of thing. He spared both nerves, and erections came back right away. Same quality as before surgery.
If you are going to have surgery in CT, he is one of the best and most experienced.
If you like I would be happy to tell you more. Send an e-mail if you have additional questions. BB
