Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy
What is the prostate?
The prostate is a chestnut-sized gland that is part of the male reproductive system. Its function is to produce a fluid that is part of male ejaculate or semen. It is located below the bladder neck and surrounds the urethra (tube the urine passes through).
Prostate cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form inside the prostate. When prostate cancer is detected early, prostatectomy – surgical removal of the prostate gland- offers a potential cure.
