Prostate Cancer

Overview

Robotic Radical Prostatectomy: Robot-assisted removal of cancerous prostate along with surrounding lymph nodes, followed by anastomosing urinary bladder to the urethra to maintain the continuity of the urinary tract. We routinely practice certain techniques to avoid urinary leaks and positive surgical margins.

Channel TURP: This is a palliative procedure, where only the obstructing part of the prostate is removed by a resectoscope. This is performed in case of advanced prostate carcinoma which is not amenable for complete surgical removal.
