Improving the Technical Quality of Radical Prostatectomy

What is MUSIC Video Review?

  • Goal: Improve radical prostatectomy outcomes for men in Michigan through the use of video-based assessment of surgical technique.
    • Improving surgical quality
    • Improving patients’ functional outcomes after surgery

What we do:

  • MUSIC surgeons that perform robotic prostatectomies (prostate surgeries) are invited to voluntarily submit to the MUSIC Coordinating Center a video of their case(s).
  • MUSIC physicians rate a peer's de-identified edited videos for technical skill using validated measurement instruments.
    • Examine relationships between technical skill, complications, and patient reported outcomes after prostate surgery
    • Facilitate mentorship and coaching activities

MUSIC Video Library

  • Interactive open forum to review surgeries performed by MUSIC physicians who submitted their videos from across the state of Michigan.
  • Features:
    • Witness variances in approach and technique
    • Categorized by surgical performance - both technical skill, and outcomes using the MUSIC registry
