Urinary incontinence has long been a common complication among patients who have undergone robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). A novel surgical technique developed at Mount Sinai is showing considerable promise in facilitating early return of continence with low residual cancer rates.

Developed by Ash Tewari, MBBS, MCh, Professor and Chair, Milton and Carroll Petrie Department of Urology, and the Kyung Hyun Kim, MD, System Chair in Urology, the “hood technique” is unique in that it uses an anterior approach to preserve the contents of the space of Retzius during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
