Hello Sir,

You could be a candidate for robotic prostatectomy, the requirements are to have organ confined disease and not have too many other co-morbidities or bleeding disorders which could affect anesthesiology/surgery. Otherwise without metastatic disease generally radical prostatectomy can be performed in any modality laparoscopic, open or robotic.

Thanks!
