Da Vinci robotic surgery helps designate this physician as one of the world's top urologists...BDimage

Two hundred times a year Dr. Thomas Ahlering peers into a cavernous opening, grabs hold of his rescue tool, and reaches out to save a man's life.

The opening looks like a cave, but it's actually the interior of a patient's lower abdomen seen through the eyepieces of the Da Vinci surgical robot, which is the tool that Ahlering uses to remove cancerous prostate glands.

Ahlering, 54, was trained in traditional open surgery, but in the past few years has turned himself into one of the world's leading urologists specializing in robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery.
