Common Questions: The Procedure

Can I have laparoscopic radical prostatectomy if I had other surgery?

Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy can be done in men who have had other operations: appendectomy, laparoscopic hernia repair, repair of abdominal trauma, transurethral prostatectomy (TURP), and others. In this intraoperative photo, the TUR defect in the prostate can be recognized as a hole at the base of the prostate; the vas deferens has been grasped before transection, while the seminal vesicle is partly visible behind the vascular pedicle.
