The surgery, performed by Dr. Joseph Chin, and assisted by urologists Dr. Stephen Pautler and Dr. Patrick Luke, was completed April 2 at the University Campus of London Health Sciences Centre.
At a console several feet from the patient, Dr. Chin was guided by the da Vinci robot's 3- dimensional imaging and removed the prostate by manipulating the robotic arms, which were inserted through small 2-centimetre incisions in the lower abdomen.
The surgery is part of a pilot study at CSTAR that will evaluate the role of surgical robotics in the management of prostate cancer.Researchers also hope to determine if robotic-assisted surgery will lead to faster recovery of urine control and reduced risk of erectile dysfunction, which are common in patients who have their prostate removed.
"Due to the fact that this surgery was robotic- assisted and minimally invasive, the patient can expect a faster recovery, less post-operative pain and less blood loss," says Dr. Joseph Chin, chief of urology at London Health Sciences Centre, associate scientist with Lawson Health Research Institute, and chair of the division of urology at The University of Western Ontario.Chin adds, " For the surgeon, the robot provides much better visualization, magnification, and improved dexterity, which all translates into greater surgical accuracy overall."

Belizean borned, London, Ontario City Councillor, Harold Usher, a Distinguished Toastmaster, a Professional Engineer and a prostate cancer survivor, has collaborated with renowned Canadian Urologist, Scientist and Professor, Dr. Joseph Chin, also of London, to write a new bold informative and inspiring book on the prostate, entitled "PROSTATE!
Dr. Joseph Chin explains that the book is a "one of a kind," written in a simple style that is easily read and understood and easy to wade through. It takes a complex subject and simplify it for the ordinary layman to understand. It is written from the perspective of the patient and as such, it is of definite advantage for the patient. He also emphasizes it is imperative that men get a regular (yearly) medical check-up which includes a Digital Rectal Examination (DRE), and when diagnosed with a prostate problem, particularly prostate cancer, take action as quickly as possible.
Dr. Joseph Chin is a renowned Canadian Urologic Surgeon and a leading authority on prostate cancer treatment with vast experience in the area of radical prostatectomy. He has treated thousands of men with prostate cancer over the past 25 years. With a strong interest in the area of minimally invasive therapy for prostate cancer, Dr. Chin is Canada's leading authority on Cryosurgery and is the first Canadian Urologist to perform a robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. He is also a member of the Canadian team conducting the clinical trial for HIFU.
Dr. Chin is Professor of Urology & Oncology and Chair of the Division of Surgical Oncology at the University of Western Ontario. He has published over 100 scientific articles in leading journals, the majority of them dealing with the subject of prostate cancer. He is Head of Surgical Oncology for Southwestern Ontario Region. As well, he is an Associate Scientist with the Lawson Health Research Institute and J.P. Robarts Research Institute, in London, Ontario, CANADA.
Recognizing that this book will make a worthwhile contribution to the area of patients' information and education and provide an invaluable service for the prostate cancer community, he participated enthusiastically in the development of its contents to ensure its medical accuracy, completeness and that its scientific explanations would be comprehensible for readers with various backgrounds.
