Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy
Prostate cancer affects one in nine men and is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. One of the best ways to detect prostate cancer early is through screening. It can often be found early by testing for prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in a man’s blood. Another way to find prostate cancer early is the digital rectal exam (DRE). In the event that a positive result is detected,our specialists offer a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy procedure for our patients, a minimally invasive surgery procedure used to remove a patient’s cancerous prostate. Our group of specialised urologists will discuss the best pathway for your treatment.
