Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure for a Radical Prostatectomy Surgery Cost in India- Prostate cancer surgery cost India .
Surgery is a common choice to try to cure prostate cancer if it is not thought to have spread outside the prostate gland.
The main type of surgery for prostate cancer is a radical prostatectomy. In this operation, the surgeon removes the entire prostate gland plus some of the tissue around it, including the seminal vesicles. A radical prostatectomy can be done in different ways.
Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy
For a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy(LRP), the surgeon inserts special long instruments through several small incisions to remove the prostate. One of the instruments has a small video camera on the end, which lets the surgeon see inside the body.
Laparoscopic prostatectomy has some advantages over open radical prostatectomy, including less blood loss and pain, shorter hospital stays (usually no more than a day), and faster recovery times (although the catheter will need to remain in the bladder for about the same amount of time).
In experienced hands, LRP appears to be as good as open radical prostatectomy, but we do not yet have long-term results from procedures done in the United States.
The rates of major side effects from LRP, such as erection problems and trouble holding urine (incontinence) seem to be about the same as for open prostatectomy. (These side effects are described below.) Recovery of bladder control may be delayed slightly with this approach.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy
In this approach, also known as robotic prostatectomy, the laparoscopic surgery is done using a robotic system. The surgeon sits at a control panel in the operating room and moves robotic arms to operate through several small incisions in the patient’s abdomen.
Robotic prostatectomy has advantages over the open approach in terms of less pain, blood loss, and recovery time. But in terms of the side effects men are most concerned about, such as urinary or erection problems (described below), there doesn’t seem to be a difference between robotic prostatectomy and other approaches.
For the surgeon, the robotic system may provide more maneuverability and more precision when moving the instruments than standard LRP. Still, the most important factor in the success of either type of laparoscopic surgery is the surgeon’s experience and skill.
