Nerve-Sparing Turns 25

[revised June 8, 2008]

Patrick Walsh performed the first nerve-sparing prostatectomy 25 years ago -- April 26, 1982 -- on Robert Hastings. Hastings, who was a Cleveland economics professor, was 53 years old at the time.

See this NPR story and photo about Hastings and Walsh.

An interview with Patrick Walsh can be found here.
