What People Say About Dr. Robert Lipson, MD

Lipson implanted a Calypso beacon into my prostate. This is so the radiation beam can be more precise target the prostate. I asked the nurses who were preping me "how many times had this Dr performed this procedure". They said "Oh many times, many times" without telling me how many. I asked the Dr as he came in and he said “3” times!! I should have walked out right then!! I started bleeding hrs later, passed out and came to and was transported to emergency room. I’m lucky to be alive.

I searched forever to find a Dr. I could trust to remove a very enlarged prostate without severe side effects. The procedure took over 3 hours robotic assisted. Today all is well and all functions are the same as before. Three years have passed. Its not about the money, its about the quality of life afterwards. I made the right choice.
