Jim Vergeront tackled his diagnosis of prostate cancer head-on. He chose robotic prostatectomy at the UW Carbone Cancer Center because he wanted to remove the cancer completely and return to his active lifestyle.

 

Robotic prostatectomy is a less invasive approach to prostate removal. The da Vinci robotic prostatectomy procedure is a new approach to prostate removal that incorporates the latest advancements in robotic-assisted technology.
