This three treatment options have distinct benefits, as well as side effects, that are different from the other. Only your doctor can answer your question because the patient needs to undergo several health exams, and the doctor also needs to evaluate his health history. And yes, there are many hospitals now that performs robotic surgery. I have read that it has fewer complications, less scarring, and faster recovery compared to radiation and chemotherapy. However, it is always important to consult the doctor to know if it is indeed the best treatment. I suggest that you refer for articles at , that I think may be of great help to you.
