Radical prostate removal is intended for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer, organ limited or locally advanced.
Based on the patient's state of health and the degree of dissemination of the disease, the doctor will decide on the choice of open prostatectomy or laparoscopic technique.
The doctor makes an incision on the pubic symphysis of the patient, the urologist visually evaluates the extent of the changes and removes of the entire prostate, seminal vesicles and, in some cases, lymph nodes.
The doctor makes several small incisions on the skin of the abdomen and inserts a laparoscopic camera and other laparoscopic instruments through them. After the initial visual assessment of the organ, it removes the entire prostate with seminal vesicles and lymph nodes. The procedure is less invasive, it has fewer complications and a faster recovery time.
Before making a decision about choosing a prostate cancer treatment method, urological consultation with possible qualification for the procedure is necessary. During the consultation, the doctor will conduct a thorough interview and urological examination, after familiarizing with the results of the tests, will assess the concentration of PSA, the result of histopathological collection of prostate specimens. In the absence of test results, the doctor will indicate the best diagnostic path and possible therapy routes.
