This is an offshoot of my earlier post “How much does prostate surgery cost in the US?” I am a 52 year-old American working in Japan, just diagnosed with prostate cancer. I am trying to explore all of my options. I live in Asia and have insurance that will reimburse me anywhere in the world except in the US. I have not been able to find the surgeon that I want in Japan.
Has anybody had surgery done by, or do you know of, a surgeon outside of the US that has a good reputation and LOTS of experience doing either open or robotic assisted surgery?
Any suggestions or ideas about locating such a surgeon and arranging such a surgery would be more than welcome. Thanks. KJN
