Single-Port Laparoscopic Surgery in Urology ‘What is Now Proved was Only Once Imagined’

      Much has changed in the nearly 10 years since we published our initial experience with single-port urologic surgery.

      In 2008, laparoscopy was an established but still evolving platform within our field, and robotics was only beginning to gain momentum beyond prostatectomy.

      Indeed, few surgeons/centers had yet tackled robotic partial nephrectomy wholesale and even fewer were entertaining robotic cystectomy and RPLND (the debate continues in that regard).

      But as surgeon experience was translated into (arguably) superior outcomes, robotics became engrained into our residents’ and fellows’ educations, it became an expectation among patients, and remains a ‘measuring stick’ among programs.
