When it comes to prostate can­cer treat­ment there are many dif­fer­ent options for care. Did you know that rough­ly 25 per­cent of men who receive radi­a­tion treat­ment have a recur­rence?

Minimally Invasive Treatment For Prostate Cancer

In fact, stud­ies sug­gest that da Vin­ci Prosta­te­c­to­my may be the most effec­tive, least inva­sive prostate surgery per­formed today.
