The number of operations a surgeon has done is often quoted as one measure of likely trustworthiness. I just read of a report covering over 8000 operations that found:
'The 5-year BCR-free survival rates for patients treated by surgeons with prior experience in performing 10, 250, and 1000 RARP procedures were 82.0%, 82.7%, and 84.1% respectively.
Compared with surgeons performing open and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, those performing RARP achieve adequate cancer control in the early phase of their careers.'
No mention of incontinence, ED or other complications.
