Daycase Robotic Surgery- The Future for Cancer Care

Goonewardene SS

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. Radical robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) is the standard technique to treat localised prostate cancer. Standard operating procedure dictates an overnight admission. Yet the technique is minimally invasive and patients operated on early in the list with no complications are fit for discharge by that evening. We review the literature on Daycase prostatectomies. The majority of patients have no complications and complications that do occur are minor. Based on these results, a new follow-up protocol is developed for Daycase radical robotic laparoscopic prostatectomy.
