Radical Prostatectomy is a surgical procedure conducted to completely remove the prostate gland, as well as the seminal vesicles and a part of the urethra within the prostate. It is usually opted to remove prostate cancer.

There are two types of radical prostatectomy surgery – open surgery and laparoscopic surgery. Lap prostratectomy can be also performed by guiding robotic arms that hold the surgery tools, known as robotic assisted prostatectomy.

The radical prostatectomy procedure is done under general anesthesia. Your doctor makes a large incision either in the lower belly or in the perineum between the anus and the scrotum, to perform open surgery. And for laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes several small incisions. A laparoscope and special instruments are inserted into the incisions. Finally, the prostate is removed.

You will need a hospital stay of 2 to 4 days and the catheter will be there for a week. The complete recovery after a radical prostatectomy takes more than a month.

Radical prostatectomy is a major operation and carries the same risks as any other major operation such as heart problem, bleeding, infection, allergy with anesthesia. However, some specific complications of radical prostatectomy are erection problems, urinary incontinence, and damage to the urethra or rectum.
