    Prostate Cancer Surgery

Why is Choosing a Highly Experienced Surgeon so Important?

Statistics have shown that when treating prostate cancer, the chance of relapse following prostatectomy performed by a less experienced surgeon (those who have performed fewer than 250 operations) is 70% higher than that performed by a highly experienced surgeon (those who have performed nearly 1000 operations). The 5-year relapse rate in patients operated on by less experienced surgeons is 17.9%, whereas that operated on by highly experienced surgeons is only 10.7%. These figures reveal that surgeon experience is negatively correlated with the 5-year relapse rate of patients with cancer, indicating the importance of selecting a highly experienced surgeon.
