Prostate Surgery(Open Prostatectomy)

A prostatectomy is a surgical procedure for the partial or complete removal of the prostate. It may be performed to treat prostate cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia.

A common surgical approach to prostatectomy includes making a surgical incision and removing the prostate gland (or part of it). This may be accomplished with either of two methods, the retropubic or suprapubic incision (lower abdomen), or a perineum incision (through the skin between the scrotum and the rectum).

Simple prostatectomy to treat BPH doesn't always involve removing the entire prostate, as in a radical prostatectomy. Instead, this procedure removes just the part of the prostate that's blocking the flow of urine. The surgery eases urinary symptoms and complications resulting from blocked urine flow, including:

  • A frequent, urgent need to urinate
  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Slow (prolonged) urination
  • Increased urination frequency at night
  • Stopping and starting again while urinating
  • The feeling that you can't completely empty your bladder
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Inability to urinate

Laparoscopic prostatectomy

In laparoscopic prostatectomy, surgeons make several small incisions across your belly. They insert surgical tools and a camera through the incisions and do the radical prostatectomy from outside your body. The surgeon views the entire operation on a video screen.

This type of prostatectomy has become more common over the years.

Some advantages that laparoscopic prostatectomy has over open surgery are:

  • Less pain and blood loss
  • Shorter time in hospital (often no longer than a day)
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Needing a catheter in your bladder for a shorter time
