Patient Stories

da Vinci Prostatectomy vs. Brachytherapy (Radiation)

Dr. James Porter, MD & Three Patients

Dr. James Porter "Not only do I treat patients using da Vinci Prostatectomy ... I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. When I looked at what I had been doing, at the outcomes of my patients, it was a no-brainer ... I knew that I would go forward with the da Vinci Prostatectomy."

Watch the stories of Dr. Porter - da Vinci physician and patient - and his prostatectomy patients.
