CyberKnife or robotic sugery

I am in my final moments of deciding whether to do CyberKnife or robotic radical prostatectomy. What is your experience and advice? I have three Gleason 6's and one 7 (3+4), clear bone scan, clear CT scan and the MRI shows four suspected tumors all inside the capsule with two touching the inside of the capsule at the base. My PSA is currently 5.58. I am 67 years old and my father had pc. Would greatly appreciate knowing your experience with CyberKnife vs surgery. Thanks.

I suggest you read the book ... " The invasion of the prostate snatchers...."

The book discusses pros and cons of surgery and if I remember correctly types of treatment.  Surgery has serious side effects... 60-80% of men undergoing surgery have problems....  big decision...good luck
