Cleveland Clinic

The Cleveland Clinic is the first hospital in the nation to use a new generation of robotics to make prostate surgeries less invasive.

Dr. Jihad Kaouk performed three successful surgeries last Friday using the Single Port SP Robot. The robot removed one enlarged prostate and two that were cancerous.

Dr. Kaouk says these procedures normally require about five cuts, but the new robot makes one small incision, causing patients less pain and allowing for a quicker recovery.
