Robotic Nerve-sparing Radical Prostatectomy (NSRP)

This procedure is for patients with clinically localized prostate cancer to provide patients with a safe and minimally invasive technique for removal of the prostate gland. During the procedure, the goal is to preserve as much of the surrounding nerve structures as possible. The nerve structures are responsible for many penile related functions; damage to which can lead to penile impotence and urinary incontinence.

Our model allows for the replication of this procedure and measurement of performance via: operation time, estimated blood loss, GEARS score, RACE (anastomosis) scoring, forces applied on nerves, and presence of positive margins.
