If this this the same Dr. Ahlering @ UCI in Orange, Ca, known as 'DR. ROBOT', then you were in good hands. I wish I had him do my surgery, but i hear he only accepts CASH patience, not insurance.
Another URO there, Dr. Orenstein, did one of my tumor excisions using the DaVinci before he left to Texas,then Florida. I see another URO there @ UCI, which I underwent a DaVinci Radical Prostatectomy there three years ago, and still have incontinence and ED...the ED for the remainder of my life, even though it was a nerve-sparing robotic surgery. So weigh all of your options before going through with this. Good luck! Yeah, I'm bitter about
what happened to me, but still, the likelihood of this cancer Killing me was very low percentage. The doc told me I would have erection in the future,but something might have gone wrong during this procedure.
