Diamonds 3- I had robotic surgery at Penn in August 2010. I can not speak highly enough of Dr. David I. Lee and his staff. It may be worth your while to speak with him as part of your decision process.
As another alumnus of Penn/Dr. Lee robotic sugery, I welcome you to the group. It appears that you are about 6 months out. It would be helpful to others if you post your stats in your signature, which you can do by going to "My Profile". There are 3-4 other Univ. of Penn/Dr. Lee grads in the group, and we all have the same high regard for Lee, staff and our outcomes. We're glad you quit "lurking" and joined the brotherhood----again, welcome!
