Maximal Urethral Length Preservation (MULP)
Dunn successfully underwent a robotic prostatectomy at Jackson
South. During the procedure, Dr. Razdan used two techniques,
the human amniotic membrane procedure and the modified
maximal urethral length preservation (MULP), which helps early
return of urinary continence.
Normally, men experience bladder weakness following prostate

“With the MULP technique, patients at the Urology Center of
Excellence at Jackson South have successfully regained control

findings published in the prestigious Journal of Endourology in
Dunn also became the first patient at Jackson South to undergo
robotic surgery with the hospital’s new da Vinci® Xi Surgical
System, which was launched in April 2014. The da Vinci Xi offers
advanced features over its predecessor, the original da Vinci
System. It includes wristed instruments, intuitive motion and an
ergonomic design. Most notably, it enables 3D-HD visualization,
which helps surgeons perform surgical procedures with a
magnified view, virtually extending their eyes and hands into the
As Dunn continues his recovery, he is looking forward to traveling
and playing golf. He also plans to continue volunteering for Relay
for Life – but now, as a cancer survivor.
“With everything I’ve been through in the last couple of months,”
he said, “I’ve earned that purple shirt and will be wearing it at the
next Relay for Life.”
