What is Prostatectomy

Prostatectomy refers to the surgical removal of the prostate gland, which is performed to treat several prostate gland issues. Prostatectomy may involve partial or complete gland removal depending on the condition, its severity, and other factors. The prostate gland produces a fluid responsible for nourishing the semen and transporting it. This gland is located in the male pelvis, below the urinary bladder, and surrounds the urethra. A prostatectomy can be performed through open, laparoscopic, or robotic techniques based on the serious condition. This procedure aims to treat issues like prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), etc. Contact Pristyn Care’s experienced urologists to get prostatectomy surgery at affordable rates.

Urologists suggest some diagnostic tests before prostatectomy to figure out the disease/condition, what’s causing it, and how severe it is. In general, urologists suggest the following diagnostic tests before a prostatectomy procedure:

Digital rectal exam (DRE): 

DRE is performed to rule out abnormal growths in the rectum while assessing the shape, size, and texture of the prostate gland. The doctor inserts a gloved and lubricated finger into the rectum to perform the diagnosis. It also helps the surgeon figure out the severity of the condition.

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test: PSA is considered the most accurate test for prostate pathology. It involves checking the levels of PSA (a protein made by the prostate gland). When the prostate gland is enlarged, the amount of PSA increases, and its concentration indicates the severity of the condition.


In this test, the doctor uses a visual scope to determine the prostate gland’s size. The visual scope is inserted into the urethra to access the bladder for assessment.


In an ultrasound, doctors insert a small probe into the rectum to determine the shape and size of the prostate gland. The ultrasound probe produces images of the rectum.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI):

MRI scan allows patients to get a clear picture of the prostate gland. It becomes requisite if the doctor suspects aggressive prostate cancer.

Prostate biopsy:

A prostate Biopsy is performed to confirm the presence of prostate cancer. It involves collecting cells from the prostate cells and studying them under a microscope. This is done to determine the cellular structure of the cells and rule out prostate cancer.

Prostatectomy  Surgery Preparation

As with any other surgery, preparing for prostatectomy helps in many ways. It brings down the risk of surgery-related complications and also helps patients remain calm during the procedure. So, find below some important tips that you must follow to have a smooth prostatectomy surgery: 

  • Make sure your bowel is clean and empty before the surgery. 
  • Do a bowel prep. This preparation includes using laxatives and enemas to clear out the bowel before the surgery. 
  • Pay special attention to what you eat. Make modifications in your diet, and make sure you avoid junk food and anything spicy or too oily. 
  • If you smoke, make sure you quit or stop about 2 weeks before the surgery. Smoking can hamper the healing and recovery process. 
  • If you are on medication, convey it to your doctor before the surgery. Some medicines can cause hindrances in the surgical process and must be discontinued before the day of surgery. 
  • It’s normal to have questions regarding surgery. Make sure you get your queries addressed with the doctor in advance. This will help you remain calm and composed during treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does recovery after prostatectomy take?

Complete recovery after prostatectomy can take up to 4 to 6 weeks. Most patients prefer going for a follow-up session after 4 weeks of the surgery. The recovery period, however, can vary from person to person.

Is prostatectomy surgery painful?

Not really. All prostatectomy surgeries are performed under anaesthesia, and patients do not feel any discomfort as such. However, mild discomfort after surgery is normal, and it’s easily manageable.

When does prostatectomy become necessary?

Prostatectomy is generally suggested to treat localized prostate cancer and other prostate gland issues such as BPH. The surgery becomes necessary when these issues cause severe symptoms that can’t be managed through other treatment methods.

Is prostatectomy covered by insurance?

Yes. Most insurance providers offer coverage for prostatectomies. This surgery becomes necessary in cases of cancer and other conditions, and it’s therefore considered a medical necessity. But, there can be a difference in the amount of coverage offered. Therefore, you can connect with your policy provider to get clarity on the insurance coverage of this surgery.

Are there any risks of prostatectomy?

The risks associated with prostatectomy procedures aren’t too many, yet can’t be ignored. Find below some risks associated with prostatectomy:

The Benefits Of Laser Prostatectomy

Laser techniques for performing prostatectomy are becoming the preferred method of treatment, and rightfully so. Laser prostatectomy includes shrinking or extracting excess tissue from the enlarged prostate gland with the help of a laser. This method holds various advantages over traditional prostatectomy techniques, such as:

  • The risk of bleeding is minimal with laser prostatectomy, and there’s minimal to no blood loss during or after the procedure. 
  • This procedure does not require an elongated hospital stay, and in most cases, the patients are discharged on the day of the procedure. 
  • No cuts or stitches are involved in the procedure. 


Types Of Prostatectomy Surgery

Prostatectomy is of several different types. The type of prostatectomy used depends upon the following:

  • The disease 
  • Cause of the disease
  • The severity of the condition
  • Patient’s overall health
  • The technology available at the healthcare facility, etc.
  • The choice of the type of treatment depends upon the doctor, and they decide which treatment would be the best for you. The most commonly performed prostatectomy procedures include:

Laser Prostatectomy: Laser prostatectomy is an advanced prostatectomy method with several advantages over conventional techniques. To perform a laser prostatectomy, doctors insert a scope through the urethra, after which a laser is passed through the scope. The laser delivers energy which shrinks the prostate gland and helps remove the excess tissue, relieving the painful symptoms. 

This technique poses a lower risk of bleeding, causes minimal discomfort to the patient, doesn’t require a prolonged hospital stay, and has a shorter recovery period.

Robot-assisted Radical Prostatectomy: This is the latest and most advanced prostatectomy method. It involves nerve-sparing methods, which help in preserving sexual potency and continence in the patient and even promote quicker recovery. In this procedure, the surgeon operates from a remote-control console placed at a distance from the operating table. The surgical equipment is handled with the help of two-and and finger control devices. Doctors get a magnified, 3D view of the gland and can carry out the surgery with much more accuracy. They can make smaller incisions without complications.

Open Radical Prostatectomy: This surgery involves the complete removal of the prostate gland and is generally performed in prostate cancer cases. This technique makes incisions in the lower abdomen, above the pelvic bone. The doctor assesses the prostate gland and then discets it to cut its connection with the surrounding nerves and blood vessels. Finally, the gland and its surrounding tissue are completely extracted, and the incisions are closed with sutures.

Open Simple Prostatectomy: Open simple prostatectomy becomes necessary when the prostate is too large in size and can not be treated through less-invasive methods. The surgeon begins by inserting a cystoscope, i.e., a long and flexible viewing scope through the urethra, into the bladder and prostate area. The insertion of a tube follows this called a Foley Catheter through the tip of the penis. This tube helps drain all the urine. Then, the surgeon makes a large incision right below the navel and above the pelvic bone to remove the affected parts of the prostate. In the final step, the surgeon places temporary drainage tubes through the punctures in the skin near the surgery site, which are removed before discharge. 


Recovery Process After Prostatectomy

Upon the completion of the surgery, you’ll receive prescription pills and instructions on how to take them. If the doctor feels you’re fit to go back home, you’ll be discharged from the hospital on the same day with some instructions. You might have to visit the hospital one more time for staple removal. Additionally, a urinary catheter will be placed, which you’ll have to carry for 10 days. While complete recovery after surgery can take up to a year, you will be able to resume your activities within a week of the surgery. 

In the case of any surgery, after-care plays a significant role in increasing or decreasing the time of recovery. Here are some after-care tips that will help you recover faster after prostatectomy surgery: 

  • Do not rush into resuming your daily activities. Make a steady transition to your routine activities. You should be able to resume your normal activities within 6 to 7 days of surgery. 
  • Make sure you go for regular checkups. This helps lower the risk of postoperative complications. See a doctor every three months of surgery for at least a year after your procedure day. 
  • Ask the urologists about when you can start driving after surgery. We suggest waiting for at least a week before you begin driving again. 
  • Talk to your doctor about when you can resume your sexual activity after surgery. Men who undergo simple prostatectomy will notice very little to no semen discharge during sex for some time. However, they will still have an orgasm. Also, after radical prostatectomy, recovery of erectile function can take as many as 18 months. 
  • Make sure you do your kegel exercises as part of your routine.
