Open Prostatectomy

Open Prostatectomy Procedures and Treatments

Open prostatectomy is a surgical method to remove the prostate, in which one incision is made from the pubis up to the umbilicus (belly button). This open prostatectomy procedure is commonly used when a radical prostatectomy is required to remove the prostate gland, the seminal vesicles and pelvic lymph nodes.
