Robotic Surgery at Second Annual Rambam Summit in Haifa, Israel »
In the past year, I have had the opportunity to travel to various parts of the world as part of my global initiative to increase awareness of prostate cancer and robotic prostate surgery. I visited Israel in December, where I performed six live operations to demonstrate my SMART surgery technique to the country’s most skilled surgeons. I then took part in a highly publicized conference on the future of robotic surgery at the Hospital Metropolitano de Santiago (HOMS) in the Dominican Republic. Several articles regarding that trip have since been published in Spanish and the positive feedback that I continue to receive from patients and doctors around the world is truly heartwarming.
English-speaking men are fortunate in that they have access to an abundance of information regarding all aspects of prostate cancer, from screening and prevention to treatment and management. In other parts of the world, however, non English-speakers have a much harder time finding the information they need and deserve. This is why I’ve made my educational website, www.roboticoncology.com, available in as many languages as possible. The site has recently been available in six languages; English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, and Russian. Just last week we added Hebrew as our seventh supported language to assist our friends in Israel who now have the robotic prostatectomy procedure available to them as a local option. I hope this site serves as a centralized information portal, accessible to anyone and everyone who wants to know the most up-to-date news about prostate cancer and how to beat it.
In addition, we also recently launched the Hebrew version of my professional website, www.smart-surgery.com. This site carries useful information specifically related to my SMART surgery technique that was demonstrated during my trip to Israel.
