  • Robotic RPLND Surgeon in NYC?

    Hello,
    Can anyone recommend a surgeon in the NY area who specializes in Robotic RPLND surgery?
    Thank you in advance!

    In NYC the best place for testicular cancer is Memorial Sloan Kettering. However, they usually prefer open vs Robotic RPLND. Where are you in the process? Is this a post-chemo RPLND or a primary RPLND?

        If it were me I’d be at Sloan.

          If it were me, I'd go to Sloan as they have the most experience. While a Robotic RPLND is feasible and can reduce the recovery time by a few days, the oncological outcomes long-term are open to a lot of debate. If it were the way to go, then the top RPLND surgeons would certainly go to it but they aren't flocking to the robotic RPLND. To me, that tells me something.
