Radical Laparoscopic Prostatectomy and Prostate Cancer Treatment


The radical laparoscopic prostatectomy is a new version of the radical prostatectomy which uses series of small incisions and a laparoscope to extract the prostate gland. In laparoscopic prostatectomy cannot perform the nerve-sparing technique as easily as the retropubic procedure and the laparoscopic procedure cannot dissect the lymph nodes. The recovery time for laparoscopic prostatectomy patients is relatively short and patients usually experience less pain and bleeding.
