What is prostatectomy?

Prostatectomy is the surgical removal of prostate gland.


This can be partial or incomplete removal using a minimally invasive endoscopic technique such as TURP (usually done for benign prostatic enlargement). Complete removal of the prostate gland or radical prostatectomy is usually done for prostate cancer as a curative treatment. Our team includes the lead pelvic cancer surgeon for the north Essex population. We run specialist cancer clinics at Colchester Hospital, Southend University Hospital and Oaks Hospital.

Most of these operations are performed laparoscopically and we carry out nearly 100 of these operations every year.
