Apostolos and Georgios Labanaris are Doctors specialized in the field of Urology.
After gaining multiannual experience in world known, academic and university hospitals in Germany, as well as in the biggest center for robotic assisted Urologic surgery in Europe (St. Antonius Hospital Gronau, Germany - European Robotic Institute), they continue their exercise of Urology at Interbalkan Medical Center, Thessaloniki, Greece.
They are certified surgeons of the robotic system Da Vinci from Intuitive Surgical U.S.A.
Apostolos Labanaris before returning to Greece was a assistant director of Urology at St Antonius Hospital, Gronau and Georgios Labanaris before returning to Greece was a consultant of Urology at St Antonius Hospital, Gronau.
Their team has:
Performed more than 8000 Urologic operations of which more than 1.000 were performed robotically.
Won 15 rewards in the largest international congresses for their work (USA - Europe)
Published 67 articles in the most known international journals
Presented their work in 245 in the largest international congresses (USA - Europe)

ROBOTIC PROSTATECTOMY THE CUTTING-EDGE TREATMENT OF THE CANCER OF PROSTATE
What is the prostate cancer;
Prostate is a small gland of the male mammals, including those of men, located under the bladder and surrounds the urethra. Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the prostate. Most cancers grow gradually; nonetheless, some cases of aggressive cancer could also be found.
How frequent is the prostate cancer;
Prostate cancer develops mainly in men over fifty years of age. It is the second most common cancer diagnosed, as well as the sixth most vital cause of death by cancer among men globally.
What is the Robotic system Da Vinci and how is it operated;
The Da Vinci robotic system is the only existing one of that of Robotic Surgery equipment that has been approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the performance of surgical procedures. The robotic console, allots in the upper part, specific handles, where the surgeon places his fingers and moves the specific levers. The wheels of the robotic arm, where the surgical instruments are placed, is dragged and positioned beside the patient. Each movement of the surgeon is reproduced with utter accuracy and stability in the surgical field by the by the robotic forearms.
What is the Robotic Prostatectomy and its benefits;
Radical prostatectomy is the complete removal of the prostate along with the capsule and the surrounding tissues, including the seminal vesicle cysts. Pelvic lymphadenectomy can be performed depending on the level and degree of aggressiveness in certain cases. The robotically-assisted radical prostatectomy is performed under a minimally invasive surgery. The oncological results that have been universally published highlight an outstanding control of the cancer with a faster return of the urinary continence and that of sexual function.
