What is the success rate of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy?

Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy can have the same success rate as open radical prostatectomy, given that the surgeon is highly skilled and trained in the procedure. When considering this type of surgery, it’s instrumental to choose a doctor that has successfully practiced LRP on hundreds of cases before.

However, a recent study from Journal of Investigative and Clinical Urology elaborates on  the fact that Robot Assisted Radical Prostatectomy has fewer complications and an improved biochemical recurrence (BCR) rate, potency rate, and continence rate than LRP.
