Radical prostatectomy is a kind of prostatectomy procedure in which the prostate and all surrounding tissues are removed. Radical prostatectomy generally used for prostate cancer treatment, especially when malignant cancers already started to spread. In the case of benign prostate tumors or early stages of prostate cancer, the simple prostatectomy or partial prostatectomy may be a solution.

Different methods may be used for radical prostatectomy:

1) Open prostatectomy: The doctor makes a large incision to remove tumors.

2) Laparoscopic prostatectomy: Doctors make small incisions which laparoscopes enter the operation site. Laparoscopes is a device which has a camera and surgery tools

3) Robotic prostatectomy: In this operation style doctors use a special device when the open or laparoscopic method cannot reach all tissues. Also, the incisions are smaller than they are in open prostatectomy.

4) Transurethral prostatectomy: The doctor reaches the prostate by way of the urethra. 

Recently, patients decide for prostatectomy cure abroad, due to lower prices with good quality in medical tourism destinations, additionally with suitable conditions for a complete, successful recovery.


Applicants for radical prostatectomy are generally prostate cancer patients. Mostly if the cancer is malignant.

The most common symptoms of prostate cancer are urination problems, increased frequency of urination, bloody urine, and semen as well as distension and pain in hips and legs. People who have signs of prostate cancer are asked to undergo a series of tests, which includes PSA and biopsy. These procedure helps to determine if they have prostate cancer or other diseases.

Patient is required to stay 1 to 3 nights in the hospital


How many days should I travel/stay abroad to do the treatment?

You will need a minimum of 1 to 2 weeks off work. 


The healing process of radical prostatectomy may be long, but the hospital stay process is not long. After a few couples of days in the hospital, you can freely go home. First 7-10 days, you will have a urethral catheter to help urinate. Feeling some pain is normal after surgery, it is manageable with painkillers provided by your doctor. You should try to increase your activity day by day, and you shouldn't do any daily tiring works for some weeks
