Abul Kalam Azad, a 75-year-old patient from Bangladesh who underwent robotic prostate surgery with Dr. Ashish Sabharwal, goes into details about his prostate cancer journey.

Based on an elevated PSA detected by a local doctor it was identified that an MRI was needed & as the results came out, Mr. Azad was diagnosed with prostatic adenocarcinoma limited within the gland. He already had a cardiac stenting operation in the year 2003 and was suffering from hypertension with Diabetes, since March 2018. The family was very disturbed seeing his already complicated state of health and started to consider many treatment options like chemotherapy, radiation, traditional versus robotic prostate cancer surgery, and visited their local surgeon to discuss at length regarding each alternative.

What Lyfboat really did for AK Azad is truly exceptional. In this video, he shares his personal experience through his treatment.

Mr. Azad’s Son, Dr. AKM Ziaul Hoque, a renowned surgeon himself in Bangladesh, decided to explore the best urologist in India, who uses the latest Da Vinci technique for robotic prostatectomy. The most popular robotic prostatectomy available today involves the da Vinci Surgical System. Unlike laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci Surgical System instruments used in robotic prostatectomy can turn in all directions with better articulation and freedom. During robotic prostate surgery, the da Vinci robot provides the surgeon with improved visualization, dexterity, and precision compared with open or laparoscopic surgery, while enabling operation through very small incisions.

He says “I inquired at multiple places as Robotic Prostatectomy is not available in Bangladesh. Hence I decided to post the inquiry on the platform called Lyfboat. They instantly connected me to the top Indian Urologists on their panel and provided me with many options. “Dr. Ashish Sabharwal came across as a very promising surgeon, he has performed many radical robotic prostate surgeries to date which made me and my father realized that a surgeon’s experience plays an extremely important role in the patient’s outcome, quality of life and continence.”

“We were finally in safe hands and I was successfully operated in Apollo Hospital, New Delhi. I walked in as a patient and I walk back fully recovered and with a lot of mental peace. The next best thing to not having Prostate Cancer is to be lucky enough to have Dr. Ashish Sabharwal, his team and incredibly competent Lyfboat team take care of you. Thank you for being there for me”
