Dr. Razdan, a globally recognized Robotic and Urologic surgeon was recently featured on WPLG-Ch. 10 Local 10 News in Miami with Hunter Franqui.
In the Interview, Dr. Razdan discusses the latest Prostate Cancer figures in the United States and some of the latest innovations in Robotic Prostatectomy. Dr. Razdan has performed over 7,000 Robotic procedures and is considered one of the most experienced Robotic Prostate Surgeons in the world.
Dr. Razdan also presented his book titled Urinary Continence and Sexual Function after Robotic Radical Prostatectomy. This is the the first book in the world to focus exclusively on the anatomical, physiological, pathological, and technical aspects of post robotic prostatectomy in regards to urinary continence and erectile function.
Dr. Razdan, one of the leaders in Robotic Hernia Repair, just published a new study in the World Journal of Hernia and Abdominal Wall Surgery in March 2019.
The study demonstrates the feasibility and advisability of repairing most inguinal hernias uncovered during Robotic Prostatectomy as it is without any significant alteration of peri-operative morbidity, is associated with excellent post-operative outcomes, and eliminates the need for a future surgical procedures.
Hernia was founded in 1997 by Jean P. Chevrel with the purpose of promoting clinical studies and basic research as they apply to groin hernias, internal hernias, the abdominal wall (anterior and postero-lateral aspects), the diaphragm and the perineum, the advancement of abdominal wall and hernia surgery in all aspects, the study of anatomical, physiological, pathological and therapeutic issues concerning the abdominal wall and hernias, the creation of associated groups which will promote research and teaching in this field, the development of interdisciplinary relations. “Hernia” is a journal written by surgeons who have made abdominal wall surgery their special field of interest. The Journal aims at making the surgical daily activities easier and safer and at offering to all surgeons a forum for the exchange of new results and ideas. The European Hernia Society (EHS), established in 1979, the Americas Hernia Society (AHS), established in 1997, and the Asia Pacific Hernia Society (APHS), established in 2004, are affiliated to the journal.
Dr. Sanjay Razdan was nominated to the Royal College of Surgeons as an honorary Fellow last week; this is a rare privilege granted to physicians of international eminence after intensive scrutiny by a convened Fellowship Committee of their contributions to their specialty; in Dr Razdan’s case, this was on the basis of his numerous contributions to the field of endourology and minimally invasive surgery internationally.
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, is an institute of physicians and surgeons in Glasgow, Scotland.
Founded by Peter Lowe after receiving a royal charter by James VI in 1599, as the Glasgow Faculty, it originally existed as a regulatory authority to ensure that physicians and surgeons In the West of Scotland were appropriately trained and regulated. In 1909, it achieved Royal recognition and became the Royal Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RFPSG). In 1962, following agreement with the other medical and surgical Royal Colleges in the UK it achieved collegiate status as the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG), by which name it is known today.
“New Breakthrough article just published to predict postoperative return of potency at 1 year after robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy in the Indian Journal of Urology – January 2019”
We examined a novel method of grading nerve sparing in robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy to better predict the potency outcomes of patients at 1-year after surgery. This grading (scale) was based on the surgeon’s criteria of intraoperative findings during completion of nerve sparing. This grading was then analyzed statistically to validate its association with potency outcomes.
The return to normal sexual function after Robotic Prostate Surgery can be attributed to the quality and quantity of erection initiating nerves, normally present around the prostate. Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a symptom just after prostate removal and is a normal part of recovery. It certainly does not predict a permanent decline in the man’s sexual prowess. While patients may take up to 18 months to recover full sexual function, in the hands of an expert urologist like Dr. Razdan the same patients experience an exceptionally faster return of sexual function, sometimes within days of the surgery.
Returning to a normal sexual life after prostate removal is challenging for the patient and Dr Razdan’s sustained efforts, experience and innovations in surgical technique has been outstanding over the past two decades.
He recently published his unique operative technique to assess quality of nerve preservation (Indian J Urol. 2019 Jan-Mar;35(1):61-66) during robotic prostatectomies which enables him to predict the sexual capabilities after surgery. This assessment along with dHAM usage (of which Dr Razdan was the pioneer in the world) enables him to ameliorate the anxiety associated with the patient’s expectation and leads to outstanding results as testified by numerous happy patients and by evidenced based medicine as seen by his numerous publications.
These two techniques go hand in hand in ensuring that the sexual recovery is remarkable in almost all patients who have their nerves preserved.
After all, nothing consoles and comforts like certainty does. Dr. Razdan provides just that.
Patients from around the world have come forward to give testimonials on their experience with Dr. Razdan and the International Robotic Prostatectomy Institute. There are now over 400 video testimonials from happy patients around the globe who have come forward. There is not a single Urologist in the world that has as many Patient Testimonials. Dr. Razdan leads all South Florida Surgeons in the number of Robotic Prostatectomies performed as well as outcomes with respect to cancer control, erectile function and urinary continence. With now over 6,500 satisfied patients, there is no question that Dr. Razdan is the leader in Robotic Prostate Surgery.
There has always been a concern about the optimal treatment for patients with locally advanced prostate cancer. When we talk about locally advanced prostate cancer, the modalities of treatment that are generally recommended are surgical extirpation (to remove or destroy totally) via open radical prostatectomy or robotic radical prostatectomy vs radiation therapy along with Hormone Therapy.
In a recent article where they studied over 14,000 men with locally advanced prostate cancer, the results are now irrefutable that surgery for locally advanced prostate cancer is far better in terms of being disease free and overall survival then primarily treating these patients with localized radiation therapy.
“New Groundbreaking study on Human Amniotic Membrane in Robotic Prostatectomy published in Journal of Robotic Surgery – September, 2018”
A matched and controlled longitudinal cohort study of dehydrated human amniotic membrane allograft sheet used as a wraparound nerve bundles in robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy: a puissant adjunct for enhanced potency outcomes
“New Breakthrough study discussing the importance of an experienced surgeon performing Robotic Prostatectomy in Challenging Cases – May of 2018”
The Conclusion of the article published in the : RALP for treatment of prostate cancer is a safe and appropriate option in men who have previously undergone suprapubic open prostatectomy for BPH, especially in the hands of an experienced surgeon.
