Abstract

The occurrence of multiple primary tumors is rare. Here we present a case of a 65-year-old male with a longstanding cardiac condition who presented with synchronous adenocarinoma of the stomach and prostate. Both cancers were managed simultaneously using robot-assisted laparoscopy techniques. Subtotal gastrectomy with gastro-jejunostomy and nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy were performed successfully. Post-operative course was likewise uneventful. Operative and oncologic outcomes were excellent with the patient cancer-free after one year of follow up. We believe the robotic system enabled us to manage this case simultaneously with excellent results.
