This is the most preferred approach by doctors for aborting prostate glands in patients suffering from prostate cancer. The surgical procedure aims at removing the prostate cancer completely from the body. Even if cancer has reached an advanced stage, surgery helps to control, if combined with other methods that are used for the treatment.
Steps to take before the treatment
The medications which lead to blood thinning should be avoided at least 7 days before the procedure begins. The doctor will give specific diet instructions which should be followed. The patient should completely avoid consumption of alcohol, smoking, and use of tobacco before the procedure starts.
What happens during the procedure?
The instruments or robots are controlled by the operating surgeon while the robotic prostatectomy is in the process. The surgeons will administer a telescopic lens inside one of the six small incisions made by the surgeon. The lens provides a magnified 3-dimensional view of the nerves and organs present, which helps the surgeon to precisely remove the cancerous tumour. The prostate gland that contains the cancerous cells is removed, and the urethra and bladder are stitched together. All the small incisions that are left are closed by taking help from the absorbable sutures.
After the procedure
After the procedure is complete, the patient may experience pain, nausea, and constipation, as after effects of the process. These symptoms can easily be controlled by medications prescribed by the doctor.
