Mayo Clinic in Arizona is known for using robotic
systems to treat testicular cancer — by removing the
abdominal lymph nodes. Traditionally, this surgery required
a large incision in the abdomen. “Mayo Clinic is one of a
handful of medical centers in the U.S. to offer this roboticassisted
surgery,” says Erik Castle, M.D., a urologist at
Mayo Clinic’s Arizona campus. Dr. Castle also performs the
unique neobladder surgery via robot (see sidebar).
