Steve, Robotics are now the "Gold Standard". All I have heard is good things about robotics. More important is your doctor's experience with the machine. I've read where you doctor should have minimally 400 procedures under his belt.
Please check into it.
Our prayers will be with you on 3/3. I am sure everything will be fine.

Buy Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer Second Edition by Patrick C. Walsh and Janet Farrar Worthington. As a word of warning, while this book has been updated I believe the authors are biased against Robotic surgery, and believe this book was originally written when robotic surgery was in it's infancy
