What is Radical Prostatectomy ?

The best way to treat prostate cancer is to have the prostate gland surgically removed, a procedure called radical prostatectomy. The entire prostate, as well as any adjacent tissues such as seminal vesicles and some nearby lymph nodes that may carry cancer, are removed during a radical prostatectomy. When a man's cancer is localized to the prostate, radical prostatectomy is usually the procedure of choice.

There are different techniques to perform Radical Prostate Removal Surgery (Prostatectomy),which include open, laparoscopic or robotic. Open prostatectomy is the standard method of removing the prostate gland. Another, more contemporary method is minimally invasive surgery. Laparoscopic prostatectomy and robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy are two minimally invasive procedures used in radical prostatectomy.

Open prostatectomy: The physician creates a vertical 8- to 10-inch incision below the abdominal button in this classic form of radical prostatectomy. This incision is used to perform radical prostatectomy.Laparoscopic prostatectomy: During a laparoscopic prostatectomy, physicians make a series of tiny incisions across the abdomen. Through the incisions, surgical tools and a camera are inserted, and radical prostatectomy is conducted from the outside of the body.

Robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy: Small incisions in the belly are created in robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy, much like in traditional laparoscopic prostatectomy. From outside the body, a surgeon directs an advanced robotic system of surgical tools.

Nerve sparing prostatectomy: When the cancer is intertwined with the nerves, a nerve-sparing prostatectomy is performed to preserve the nerve's natural function and structure.

Radical prostatectomy with retro pubic approach: The prostate gland is removed using traditional open surgery. The prostate is removed through a lower abdominal incision.

Radical prostatectomy with perineal approach: Prostate is accessed through an incision between the anus and scrotum in radical prostatectomy with perineal approach.

When is Radical Prostatectomy required ?

Radical prostatectomy is most beneficial for men younger than 75 who have limited prostate cancer and expect to live at least 10 more years.

Prostate cancer surgery is best for those who have cancer that is restricted to the prostate, are under 75 years old, and are otherwise healthy.

How is Radical Prostatectomy done?

Step 1

The prostate gland is separated from the surrounding tissue by the surgeon. The seminal vesicles, which are two little fluid-filled sacs located close to your prostate, are also removed.

Step 2

The urethra is reattached to the bladder neck, which is a component of the bladder. The urethra is a tube that runs from the bladder to the penis, carrying pee.

Step 3

To screen for malignancy, your surgeon may remove lymph nodes in the pelvic. After surgery, a Jackson-Pratt drain may be left in your stomach to remove any excess fluid. To drain urine, a tube (catheter) is left in your urethra and bladder. This will last anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

What is the Recovery after Radical Prostatectomy like?

The majority of people spend one to four days in the hospital. You may be able to return home the same day as your laparoscopic or robotic surgery. For at least one month after surgery, doctors advise against excessive exertion or heavy lifting. The majority of people take three to four weeks off work.

What Results Can I Expect from Radical Prostatectomy?

In comparison to a traditional prostatectomy, robot-assisted prostatectomy can result in less pain and blood loss, less tissue trauma, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster recovery time. Around four weeks after surgery, you should be able to resume routine activities with few restrictions.

Prostatectomy is a simple procedure that provides long-term relief from urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate. Although it is the most invasive surgery for treating an enlarged prostate, it has a low risk of significant consequences. The majority of men who get the operation don't require any additional BPH therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Prostatectomy is most commonly used to treat localized prostate cancer. It can be used on its own or in combination with other treatments including radiation, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. To treat men with localized prostate cancer, a radical prostatectomy is a surgery that removes the entire prostate gland and associated lymph nodes.

The goal of a radical prostatectomy is to eliminate prostate cancer completely. It is a serious procedure with the potential for complications. This form of surgery may not be essential if you're an older man with slow-growing prostate cancer.

Based on the natural history of localized prostate cancer, males treated with radical prostatectomy (RP) or definitive external-beam radiation (EBRT) should have a life expectancy (LE) of more than ten years.

Urinary incontinence (inability to control urine) and erectile dysfunction are the most common side effects after radical prostatectomy (impotence; problems getting or keeping erections). Other types of prostate cancer treatment can also cause these side effects.

Prostate cancer can recur after a prostatectomy. According to a 2013 study, 20-40% of men with prostate cancer relapse within 10 years of undergoing a radical prostatectomy.

Following your operation, your doctor may prescribe drugs such as sildenafil, vardenafil, or tadalafil. These drugs act by increasing blood flow to the penis, which may help you get an erection again.

Because prostate removal is a big procedure, expect some discomfort and anguish. At first, you'll be given pain medicine by IV, and your doctor may also prescribe pain medication for you to take at home. For the first week, you will also have a urine catheter in place, which you may find painful.

No is the answer! If there is urine in the bladder (which there almost always is), it will flow right out. Men who don't have a prostate need to find another technique to control their urinating.

By six months after surgery, the majority of men have significantly improved. For security, many men may continue to wear a very thin pad." Kegel exercises, which strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, are a common first-line treatment for urine incontinence.

By six months after surgery, the majority of men have significantly improved. For security, many men may continue to wear a very thin pad." Kegel exercises, which strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, are a common first-line treatment for urine incontinence.After a radical prostatectomy to remove the prostate gland, you may experience bladder issues such as leaks and difficulties passing urine. Urine leakage is one of the most prevalent complications following a radical prostatectomy.

In men who have had their prostate removed, Viagra is an excellent treatment for impotence. The medicine enhances the capacity to get an erection by approximately 60% in men who have nerves spared, while it only works 20% of the time in guys who have no nerves spared.

In the weeks after the catheter is removed, most patients regain control. Within 3 to 18 months after surgery, the vast majority of men who had normal urine control before the treatment regain it.

A PSA of more than 0.2 ng/ml is considered high following prostatectomy. If the prostate cells have developed to the point where detectable amounts of PSA may be detected, this could be concerning for both the patient and the doctor.
