During open prostatectomy procedure, your medical team will open the abdomen through an incision and proceed to remove the prostate or its part. After that, they attach the urethra to the bladder and close the incision.


The recovery period of open prostatectomy is somewhat longer than robotic-assisted and laparoscopic prostatectomy because the incision is larger. 6 weeks is the general full recovery time from open prostatectomy.
