Meet Prostate Surgeon Seth Lerner's RoboProber 3000.

(click image)
Actually, it's called the Da Vinci S type device (Doctors all think they're fucking artists. And God. God-Artists. Fucking Dicks.). Way to not make me even MORE fearful of prostrate exams, Dr KillPatient. Plus the robot makes you look about three feet tall. Probably the Hospital Administrator forced you to pose with the scary thing. Plus, as reader sparkler has pointed out, he works at the "Dickstein" Cancer Treatment Center.

1. She looks pretty healthy for a cancer sufferer, doesn't she?

Is it wrong that I giggled when I saw that this guy works at the Dickstein Cancer Treatment Center?

It's called a prostate, not prostrate. And the DaVinci robot is actually a huge leap forward in prostatectomy technology. Guys are more likely to stay continent and retain erectile function after surgery than with a traditional open procedure. Recovery time is also minimized. Good stuff, and maybe you'll remember that Leonardo DaVinci was an inventor as well as an artist.
Oh yeah, the robot probes nothing, and gets nowhere near your rectum. Just a little FYI.
These things cure cancer people, it's really not something to laugh at.

They do know everything. Ever see House MD?

thanks nurse kerry. meanwhile, I stand by my assertion that all doctors are Dicks, whether you like it or not. I've never met ONE who actually listened to a fucking word I said in the treatment room, because of course they already know everything about your ailments.

And, I'm sorry, the shot of shorty Doc Napoleonic Complex next to that robot is fucking precious.

It's better than the "Maplethorpe X" series they used in the late seventies. That was was full of bugs.

Doctors are mechanics. And nothing but. To expect wise thoughtful care, in any form, from these over specialized technocratic body mechanics is to place ones health at grave risk.

One of these Da Vinci Machines helped save a friend's life - five years ago my friend would have needed open heart surgery and required months of recuperation and therapy, with a decent chance of dying during the operation. Instead of having his sternum split open, and his chest cavity exposed, one of these robots was used to make an incision below the sternum and the work was done without splitting him open like a fish. He was up and around three days later.

So, feel free to make fun, but these Da Vinci machines are the best thing since sliced bread.

ricpic: Doctors may be mechanics, but they've studied for 80 hours a week for the last 14 years to fix your ignorant ass.

And copyranter, the doctors might listen to you a bit more if you got off Medicaid.

I hate doctors. They look their best when you look your worst. Also, they have been the subject of many many crappy tv shows. So fuck them.

I went to see this lerner guy as a patient and he told me he has done 80 cases, later on I found out he has only done 40 cases.
I had my surgery done up in Hartford and did great.
He doesnt look like the type of surgeon I would go to.

Question for Anonymous: When did you see Lerner? I just had my surgery with him and thought he was great.

I had my cancerous prostate removed by that robot (and a skilled surgeon) last summer and was able to come home the next day cancer-free. Without the robot, they would have had to gut me like a fish and fooster around in their with their fat fingers.
