Prostatectomy is the surgical process of removing the entire or part of the prostrate gland due to abnormalities such as formation of tumor and enlargement mainly in the urethra. In radical Prostatectomy, along with the prostrate gland several other tissues around it is removed. It is one of the invasive ways of treating prostrate cancer.
Laparoscopic radical Prostatectomy is also popular as robot-assisted Prostatectomy. Some doctors now do it by guiding robotic arms that hold the surgery tools. This is called robot-assisted prostatectomy.

When it’s dark enough, you can see the stars.
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible. Hope never abandons you, you abandon it.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Dear GOD, if today I lose my hope please remind me that your plans are better than my Dream.....
Why the Procedure is Performed
Radical prostatectomy is most often used if testing shows that the cancer has not spread outside the prostate (Stages I and II).
Sometimes, your doctor may recommend one treatment for you because of what is known about your type of cancer and your risk factors. Or, your doctor may talk with you about two or more treatments that could be good for your cancer.
Your doctor must also think about your age and other medical problems you have. Healthy men who will probably live for 10 or more years often have this procedure.
Benefits of Radical Prostatectomy
In the early stages of cancer, this surgery is effective. This is more because the cancerous tissues have not spread. The survival rate in men below 65 years of age is more especially if they remain under surveillance and have follow-up checkup.
