   I am wondering if  the same holds true about cervical cancer.



Lead investigator Ashutosh Tewari, MD, Director of the Prostate Cancer Institute and the LeFrak Robotic Surgery Center at Weill Cornell Medical College, found 91 percent of patients who underwent a robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy retained the same orgasmic function after surgery if the nerves on both sides were cancer free and the surgeon was able to spare them. "This figure went down to 82% in men who had nerve sparing on one side and 61% in men who had little or no nerve sparing. If the patients had no nerve sparing, nerve reconstruction was attempted by joining the ends of the resected nerves,” shared Dr. Tewari.

Awarded with a Competitive Award in 2006 by the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Dr. Tewari made significant advances on his project titled “Technical Innovations in real time tissue identification during robotic radical prostatectomy to maximize cancer removal and optimize return of sexual function.” The paper was soon published in the British Journal of Urology International (BJUI) , titled “Nerve sparing can preserve orgasmic function in most men after robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP),” aimed to investigate orgasmic outcomes in patients undergoing RALP and the effects of nerve sparing surgery on these sexual function outcomes. The result from this study found that age and nerve sparing influence recovery of orgasmic and erectile function in prostate cancer patients after RALP. Their results show that men £60 years old and those who undergo bi-lateral nerve sparing during surgery are most likely to maintain normal sexual function.
