The last decade has seen many advances in the field of surgery. Even more rapidly have been the advances and expanded applications of minimally invasive surgery. The introduction of the da Vinci® robot has increased patient accessibility to advanced laparoscopic surgery. Ali Kasraeian, MD, a local urologist who performs both laparoscopic and robotic surgery, completed a fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery at the Montsouris Institute in Paris, France, before returning to Jacksonville to join his father, Ahmad Kasraeian, MD, at KASRAEIAN UROLOGY. He is quick to point out that robotic (da Vinci®) prostatectomy is a minimally invasive alternative for treatment of localized prostate cancer, offering the benefits of open prostatectomy through smaller incisions with less pain, less blood loss, faster recovery and more rapid return to normal activities.
Dr. Kasraeian can be heard on Saturdays at 5pm on The Conversation: A Radio Show, discussing the latest news in the world of health (WOKV 104.5 FM and 690 AM), telephone: (904)340-1045. Find them on Facebook at “The Conversation Jax.”
