Radical Prostatectomy

Radical prostatectomy is a surgical procedure to treat prostate cancer and involves removal of the whole prostate gland, seminal vesicles and the surrounding tissues through an incision in the lower abdomen.

Radical prostatectomy can be done either through open approach (a large incision over the abdomen) or through laparoscopy (few small holes over the abdomen), which can also be performed with the assistance of the DaVinci robot.
