What are the surgery options being offered.
Is it that your local surgeon is doing open surgery or laparoscopic key hole and the Nottingham consultant would do robotic?
Certainly the recurrence rates are important as is the experience of your surgeon in the technique being offered.
for open versus keyhole either robot Assisted or laparoscopic the main difference is the recovery time with the keyhole surgery obviously being less invasive.
When looking at recurrence rates you also need to look at the types of cancers being operated on, some surgeons or centers may have higher recurrence rates, but does this mean that the surgeons are doing a worse job or that they are taking on cases that were more difficult to start with and that some have very good stats because they only operate on the simpler, lower Gleason score cases. I think when you go to Nottingham you need to ask what are the stats for you.
