Laparoscopic prostatectomy is a minimally invasive procedure performed in patients with prostate cancer. It allows for a faster recovery compared to a traditional, open operation. During a laparoscopic prostate operation, instead of one large incision, the surgeon makes a few, usually five, small ones. To access the prostate, the doctor uses a wand-like apparatus called a laparoscope. It has a camera, a light, and a cutting device at one end. The surgeon puts it through the small incisions.

Laparoscopic prostate surgery can be performed either under general anaesthesia or with spinal anaesthesia. The first one puts You to sleep, while the latter numbs the lower half of Your body. Abdominal surgeries, like laparoscopic prostatectomy, are typically done under general anaesthesia. Spinal anaesthesia is a good alternative for patients with contraindications to general anaesthesia. Based on Your previous medical history, Your doctor will choose the best pain control method for You.

During laparoscopic prostatectomy, the surgeon first makes a series of small incisions to gain access to Your prostate. Then, he removes it using a cutting instrument and a tissue retrieval apparatus that are located at the end of the laparoscope. After that, the doctor reconnects the bladder to the urethra. To finish up the procedure, the surgeon inserts a catheter into the bladder in order to let the area heal more easily.

Your doctor will advise You about any additional tests that You might need to undergo. He will also provide You with instructions regarding Your diet. You can not eat anything for eight hours prior to the surgery. If You take any daily medications, Your doctor may advise You to stop them or alter their doses.
