tongue  I learned I had prostrate cancer in late May 2010. I am 67 years old, diabetic, and had both TURP surgery and hernia surgery in the past. Being a Jehovah's Witness I was very concerned about the blood issue. Since conventional prostrate surgery is very bloody, it was not an option. Wait and watch was also not an option because of the death of my wife's father during this process. After careful review I decided on Robotic Prostrate Surgery. It was a great choice because of the doctor involved.

While prostate surgery is typically bloody, this can typically be dealt with, without transfusion:

1. Robatic surery has less blood loss, presumably because the abdomen is pumped full of air.
2. A scavenger device can be used for open surgery. The blood in the surgical cavity is sucked up into the machine, filtered, and infused back into you.
3. You can give and store your own blood so it can be used for transfusions.

The first reference to XXXX did not pass my smell test and this is worse.

MODERATOR -- the facts may be true but we don't need some surgeon hawking his wares via his surrogate patients.

I rarely complain -- but this is ridiculous


eidted to remove deleted name. Se F8's post for further explanation.

(Clocknut said) he some kind of surgeon or something? Yo-yo-yo

Can I get witness.....can i get witness.....I like Motown for my witnesses.

Only the finest in the world, bar none, you are not worthy to touch his sandals! Walks on water and guarantee 100% cures and -0- incontinence and 100% nerve sparing and free winning lottery numbers to any patient upon request. Really all those stats, phone numbers and in a non-solicitation speech...or free advertising (I don't mind best fun I've had to day).

Show me da money!!!!!!!

I like the BOLD print for the doctors name, all of us on the forum are doing that now too.

**small print- the writer is held harmless from any similarity to the real doctor or events, done just with fun-pun envolvement, if any events are truthfulness these comments then become endorsements for extraordinary BR-549 Jr. Samples

Edited to remove, etc, etc, you know the routine

I agree with Mel. In fact, maybe we should all phone xxxxxx and tell him we know who he is....we've had our surgeries, or brachytherapies, or other treatments, and we don't need to hear his testimonials. If my surgeon asked me to come onto this site and sing his praises, I'd find that extremely self-aggrandizing and unprofessional.
In xxxxxx, why does a guy who, according to Mr. Kevitz' post does 500 surgeries a year, need to promote himself? Is he striving for 600 a year? Good grief!

Edited name out, see F8's post for explanation

I want to put in a word for my surgeon, DR. BILLY BOB SMITH. Everything about his practice is first-class, from his beautiful and semi-talented receptionist to his ultra-clean offices. My operation went so smoothly that I went out the next day and ran the New York City Marathon. And won! What more can a man ask for?

So call today at 123-456-7890.

And if you call in the next 15 minutes you will receive a free colonoscopy, courtesy of DR. BILLY BOB SMITH.

And he also makes house calls! Brings his robot right to your own bedroom. Now where are you going to find a better offer than that? Remember ... DR. BILLY BOB SMITH, 123-456-7890.

This thread has been locked by me.

{Edited} This doctor has been well known for his inappropriate ad campaigns. First off, I know the needs of a Johovah's Witness to avoid blood transfusion. But There is no one particular doctor who offer's any advantage for this reason.

If I do not hear from this poster within a few hours I will submit him for account cancellation.
