Dear Tino.
Be sure that the robotic operation does not create too much scar tissue to have prostate surgery later.
An open pure tissue will not interfere with any prostate surgery in the future.
Both operations can make urination difficult. Consider Flomax before surgery.

Thank you, Dr. Brown. I appreciate your input!

I’m on Flomax, 0.8 mg/day. But prostate is 130-140 cc, so I need a procedure (considering HoLEP).

If I don’t do the prostate first, it’s good to know an open tissue procedure will not interfere.

I do have confidence in Dr. Grischkan for the open tissue repair.
