Precise, Modern Treatment of Prostate Cancer

Precise, technological treatment of prostate cancer 

Prostate cancer remains one of the leading causes of death among Australian males. 

The good news is that prostate cancer 5-year survival is high and has improved from 59% in 1986 to 90% in 2007. Advanced treatments like radical prostatectomy surgery are part of the reason for this change.

What is Robotic Prostatectomy? 

Robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy is a groundbreaking prostate cancer treatment that’s minimally invasive and highly successful.

Facilitated by a powerful intra-abdominal digital camera, surgeons have precise magnified visualisation of the surgical anatomy. They can work safely and effectively to remove the prostate gland, leading to positive health outcomes for patients.

After surgery, some patients experience short-term issues such as temporary urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. There are also minimal risks like bleeding and infection at the site of surgery. However, most view the long-term outcomes, such as cancer control and overall quality of life, as worthy of any temporary setbacks to health.   

Your Urologist will discuss your options at length to help you decide whether the Robotic Prostatectomy procedure is right for you. 

Some patients may be more suited to Robotic Prostatectomy based on factors such as the size and location of the prostate cancer, as well as the individual’s overall health and anatomy. Robotic Prostatectomy is particularly helpful for patients with smaller tumours and those requiring a precise, minimally invasive approach, offering reduced blood loss, quicker recovery times, and potentially fewer complications than traditional open surgery. 

Firstly, don’t worry if you’re not considered suitable for Robotic Prostatectomy based on your overall health – there are many alternatives to consider. These include traditional open prostatectomy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, or active surveillance, with the choice depending on factors such as the stage of your prostate cancer and your personal preferences. All treatment options are discussed with you in full to help you understand each one and decide the right one for you. 

Both Robotic Prostatectomy and TURP (Transurethral Resection of the Prostate) surgery are treatments for supporting prostate health, but they are two distinct procedures used in different circumstances. 

Robotic Radical Prostatectomy treats prostate cancer by removing the entire prostate, whereas TURP surgery treats BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. The TURP procedure involves the removal of excess prostate tissues through the urethra.  

If you need help with TURP surgery in Sydney, contact the team at Katelaris Urology and book an appointment. 

In addition to Robotic Prostatectomy, Katelaris Urology offers a comprehensive range of urological services, including diagnosing and treating urinary tract infections, incontinence, enlarged prostate issues, erectile dysfunction and other urological disorders.
