    Prostatectomy

    What are the complications of doing a nerve sparing procedure in this operation in regards to blood loss.
    Some surgeons will opt out of this operation when asked to do nerve sparing without the use of blood.

    The best approach for this surgery is with the robot. A laparoscopic robotic prostatectomy is without blood loss. Literally a thimblefull of blood loss. And it is nerve-sparing. No patient should be subjected to an open surgery when this approach is clearly superior.
