Worth noting: At a time when no U.S. surgeon was doing laparoscopic prostate surgery, Dr. David E. McGinnis was tasked with building a laparoscopic program at Jefferson. In March 2000, he and a colleague did a laparoscopic prostatectomy. “It was the first one ever in Philadelphia,” he says—but the operation took eight hours, not the expected three. “I was consumed with trying to learn the technique,” he recalls. “Every night for a few weeks, I studied, watched a video and practiced with some instruments in a cardboard box. My wife was puzzled.” Then, he started using the da Vinci robot in 2005. “I was the first surgeon in Philadelphia to do more than 20 prostatectomies with it,” says McGinnis.
