This Dr. has supposedly done over 900 Da Vinci surgeries but there is zero mention of him on web searches except for his orology group's own ad.The ad claims the group is the 3rd largest robotics program in the world with 6 very experienced surgeons. I find it odd that in this day of surgeons promoting their numbers so aggressively that their is no web info about him anywhere.
I made an appointment because he is so close,but I am fairly set on using Randy Fagin in Austin.
Just wondered if anyone in Tx-Oklahoma area had any info.
Thanks

Hello laswell,

If you are the least bit suspicious; then find another doctor such as this Dr, Randy Fagin. Get all the info you can, testimonials, awards etc.,and of coarse 1000+ procedures would be a good bench mark.

Good luck with your search, and we'll help you any way we can.

Thanks for the support. I am interested because he is in my area. Could a very good surgeon fly under the radar like that? His nurse told me he had completed 900 Da Vinci procedures and learned from David Lee (no relation) who is now Chief of the Division of Urology at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
He could be good and just not market himself as the nurse claimed. It's just odd that I can't get any other hits on the web.
Thanks
Laswell

It might be possible, but I think unlikely. The next step you can try are endorsements. Call the local AMA in your city, check with the hospital he is affiliated with, or ask your GP for guidance on where to find history on Dr. Lee. 900 procedures means other surgeons must have some knowedge of him. After all this is a man you'll be trusting with your life.

Don't leave anything to chance; be absolutely sure before you decide.

I live near Philly, and Dr. Lee at Penn is one of the best robotic surgeons in the country.  I had an appointment with him, but his schedule is so heavy I didn't want to wait.  Went with my Uro. surgeon, one of the top 10 in Pa., and had the open RP.  Did real well, no real pain.  With the open he was able to take out 23 lynph nodes, and the SV, everything came back clean!
 
Good Luck!! yeah
