Special Issue Introduction

In current days, “precision surgery” is becoming the new paradigm: its goal is to unify and maximize oncological efficacy and patients’ quality of life and function. In the last years, the evolution of robotic surgery and the consequent minimization of surgical morbidity and hospitalization have deeply changed the therapeutic approach to prostate cancer (PCa). The current focus is to reach a “tailored” approach, which considers every patient-specific variable in order to obtain optimal urinary continence and erectile function after the intervention.

Therefore, thanks to the robotics, nowadays the surgical approach expanded its indication even in more complex diseases such as post adenomectomy or post focal therapy patients.

Moreover, several new tools have been introduced to optimize surgical planning, aid surgical navigation, and refine surgical act.

In this special issue on Robot-Assisted-Radical-Prostatectomy (RARP), several experts will report their experience in different surgical settings and with different techniques (such as retzius sparing or single port) giving readers a snapshot of the current state and the future of robotic radical prostatectomy.
