The traditional open retropubic radical prostatectomy has an established role in the treatment of prostate cancer. However, it is well known to be morbid procedure with high complication rate. This bad reputation prevented utilizing it on a large scale for high risk prostate cancer. Utilizing the da Vinci® to preform radical prostatectomy decreased the morbidity of the procedure.

In this article we reviewed the current evidence on utilizing the surgical system in treating high risk organ confined prostate cancer.
