A radical prostatectomy is the removal of the entire prostate, including its capsule, as well as the seminal vesicles. The prostate is a gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and the urethra in a male. The seminal vesicles lie behind the bladder and near the prostate. They secrete a thick fluid that forms part of the semen. Radical prostatectomy is performed under anesthesia and the procedure takes from 1.5 to 4 hours to complete. The patient is either unconscious during the prostatectomy or remains awake but numb below the waist. In the most common radical prostatectomy procedure, the incision begins below the navel and extends to just above the pubic bone. In a variation of this procedure, a smaller, curved incision is made between the anus and the base of the scrotum; the prostate is then removed from underneath the pubic bone. A nerve sparing radical prostatectomy may be employed in an attempt to preserve the man's erectile function. After removal of the prostate, the urethra is sewn to the neck of the bladder over a urinary catheter. The catheter is a narrow tube that is passed through the urethra into the bladder. Drains are placed around the site and then the incision is closed. After surgery, the patient is taken to a surgery recovery room. The catheter is removed 2-3 weeks after the procedure, and dressings are kept on the wounds until they have completely dried up. Radical Prostatectomy removes the cancer containing prostate gland and the lymph nodes in the vicinity. Open Surgery approach gives surgeon a larger area to work in, better access to the prostate gland, seminal vesicles and the lymph nodes and is used more commonly world wide. Radical Prostatectomy has a shorter hospital stay, quicker and less painful recovery. However, it requires a highly skilled surgical team to perform this challenging procedure. The main advantage of surgery is that it offers the most certain treatment. That is, if all of the cancer is removed during surgery, patient is probably cured. Also, the surgery provides doctor with accurate information about how advanced the cancer is, since the nearby lymph nodes are taken out along with the tumor.
