Surgeons at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia will perform robotic prostate surgery in front of thousands of viewers during a live surgery webcast.

Using remote controls from across the room, Wednesday, August 8 at 2:00 p.m., surgeons will operate the da Vinci® robot during a less invasive prostatectomy to treat prostate cancer. Through five tiny incisions, robotic arms and a camera are inserted during the procedure to not only remove cancerous tissue but to help preserve the patient's nerve function and minimize risk of complications.

Hosted by urologist Dr. Michael Fabrizio with the surgery performed by urologist Dr. Raymond Lance, viewers get a look into the operating room to learn more about prostate cancer and its treatment options.
