Surgeon remove prostate cancer with robot

Milan, December 28 - Surgeons used a robot to excise a cancerous prostate gland from a patient in the first operation of its kind in Italy, hospital specialists at Milanìs San Raffaele Turro Hospital said Monday. The operation performed on a 56-year-old man with a single tiny cut was the "first case in Italy of robotic radical prostatectomy" substituting for the standard procedure requiring six incisions, they said. Prostate cancer is the most common solid tumour in western countries and the second cause of death among men after lung cancer.
