KZIZ....Not True.....There are two Urologist that use the Divinci in Oklahoma City. One is out of the OU Med Center (name is Wong)?. The other is in Midwest City (name is Law?). The only machine I know of is in Midwest City.
I decided to go with my Urologist in Norman and have the
open RRP. I just felt good with My Dr. and being able to stay here in Norman. I could have wished for a little better outcome with the bladder control. But I don't think it had anything to do with my Dr. Some people just have more trouble than others.
My Dr answered all my question regarding the differance of the
open vs the Robotic. He even said he would support me if I wanted to go to one of the "Big" centers such as Mayo or Hopklins for surgery and to him for my follow up. He said this decision was all about
me and not about
him. I really respected him being so
Make the decision that is right for YOU. The go for it!!!!
Good Luck...... KW
