Cleveland Clinic

The Cleveland Clinic is the first hospital in the nation to use a new generation of robotics to make prostate surgeries less invasive.

Dr. Jihad Kaouk performed three successful surgeries last Friday using the Single Port SP Robot. The robot removed one enlarged prostate and two that were cancerous.

Dr. Kaouk says these procedures normally require about five cuts, but the new robot makes one small incision, causing patients less pain and allowing for a quicker recovery.

The Cleveland Clinic has announced it will expand a program that collects tissue and fluid samples from patients for research purposes. It’s called the Biobank.

The city's largest health care employer is making moves to attract health-tech startups to the city.

The list of charities and nonprofits that have canceled fundraising events at Mar-a-Lago continues to grow. At least 20 groups now have pulled out of galas that had been scheduled for President Trump's country club in Palm Beach, Fla.

In announcing the cancellations, many of the groups cited the controversy surrounding Trump's recent comments that "both sides were to blame" for the violence that occurred during a white supremacists' rally in Charlottesville, Va.
