Textbook Chapters on Robotic Surgery

Dr Gerald Tan and his mentor Professor Ash Tewari have contributed significantly to the published literature on the surgical craft of robotic prostatectomy. Many of their innovative surgical techniques for improving pathologic and clinical outcomes for patients undergoing robotic prostatectomy have won numerous international awards and have been adapted by surgeons worldwide. Listed below are some of their invited book chapters in the leading authoritative textbooks for robotic surgery.


Dr Gerald Tan with his mentor Professor Ash Tewari jointly receiving the 2009 Clarke Medal and Cutlers’ Surgical Prize from the President, Royal College of Surgeons of England & Worshipful Company of Cutlers, UK for their outstanding innovation and design of surgical instruments for use during robotic prostatectomy.
