The truth is, the Da Vinci system was first authorised by the Meals and Drug Administration within the USA in 2000 and has been the gold normal in prostate most cancers surgical procedure for a few years. We simply haven’t had it till now.
Once I selected therapy for my very own prostate most cancers in 2014, I elected brachytherapy (radioactive seed implants) over surgical procedure for a lot of causes. One among them was that in Saskatchewan the robotic surgical procedure was unavailable. Neither was brachytherapy, so I travelled to BC to get that performed.
I’m glad to listen to that others may have entry to this necessary medical tools. It’s simply too dangerous that it has arrived so very late in our province.

Semi-automatic rifle ban welcomed
Re: Murray Mandryk’s column in Tuesday’s StarPhoenix.
In prison fingers, semi-automatic rifles can kill extra folks and faster. They’re a risk to public security, and laws banning them is to be welcomed.
