My husband was recently diagnosed with Prostrate Cancer - early stages. My question is will medicare cover the Da Vinci Robotic Surgery? Also, is there any one here from the Las Vegas area that knows an "expert" in this field? I am having a hard time finding any answers to these questions. I know that they have the Robotic Surgery at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. We live in Mesquite, Nv. But I can't get any answers as to the cost vs reg.
open surgery, and I can't get any answers as to which surgeon has the most DaVinci surgeries under their belt? Any info on this will be much appreciated. It has been about
1 month since he was diagnosed. At first, we had made up our mind to go to the Univ. of Utah-Huntsman Cancer Center. But, were told they will NOT accept our insurance..they are in dispute with UHC. So, now I am having to start all over again. Still not sure if medicare will cover this. We are starting to get a little frustrated and anxious.
