What is Prostatectomy (Prostate Surgery)

Prostatectomy is a surgical process which is carried out by a urologist to treat various kinds of medical conditions associated with prostate gland in males. The goal of the surgery is to treat prostate cancer and some of the other types of cancer that can affect the pelvic region. The Prostate Surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and involves the partial or complete removal of the prostate.

What are the conditions we treat under prostate surgery

Some of the major conditions we treat through prostate surgery include:

  • Non-Cancerous Conditions Affecting the Prostate
    • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) (Enlarged Prostate)
    • Acute and Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis
    • Chronic Prostatitis (Non-Bacterial).
  • Cancerous Conditions Affecting the Prostate 
    • Prostate Cancer 

What are the different types of treatment procedures comes under prostate surgery

Some of the major treatment approaches we follow to treat a patient with various prostate conditions depend upon various factors including their age, overall health, and the stage of cancer. The procedures we use include:

  • Simple Prostatectomy: The part of the prostate is removed using the traditional technique to treat a more benign condition, such as BPH.
  • Radical Prostatectomy: This involves the treatment for men with localised prostate cancer. The surgery is performed to remove the entire prostate gland and surrounding lymph nodes. The surgery can be performed in two ways:
    • Robot-Assisted Prostatectomy: The surgeon uses a robotic arm to remove the gland by making a small incision in your lower abdomen to remove the prostate. The robotic arm is attached to a computer-assisted mechanical device (robot) and offers a more precise response to the movement of the surgeon's hands.
    • Laparoscopic Prostatectomy: The surgeon uses a thin, flexible tube known as Laparoscope to makes several small incisions in your lower abdomen in order to remove the prostate.
  • Laser Prostatectomy: The surgery is performed to treat symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate. A surgeon inserts a scope through the tip of your penis into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra). The laser is then passed through this tube which helps in shrinking the tissues in prostate glands thereby preventing urine flow.
  • Transurethral Resection Of The Prostate (TURP): The surgery is often performed to treat men with non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However, there are conditions when TURP is also used to help patient relieved from symptoms of advanced prostate cancer.
