Robotic surgical system for radical prostatectomy: a health technology assessment

Health Quality Ontario
Record ID 32017000345
Authors' recommendations: There is no high-quality evidence that robot-assisted radical prostatectomy improves functional and oncological outcomes compared with open and laparoscopic approaches. However, compared with open radical prostatectomy, the costs of using the robotic system are relatively large while the health benefits are relatively small.
