This video from John Hopkins Medicine shares Bill Shipp’s story. Bill is a lawyer and championship swimmer who fought prostate cancer.
At the age of 50, a routine check up showed Bill had elevated PSA levels and his primary care doctor recommended he see a urologist. The doctors at John Hopkins Medicine suggested Bill have a robotic prostatectomy to cure his prostate cancer. Four weeks after the minimally invasive treatment, Bill was given the all clear and was back in the pool taking part in swim marathons and enjoying life to the fullest.
Dr. Mohamad Allaf discusses the procedure and recovery, and explains that robotic prostatectomy is becoming a routine treatment for dealing with prostate cancer.
