We offer three surgical techniques in the treatment of Prostate Cancer.

Retropubic Prostectomy: Removal of prostate through an incision in the lower abdomen.

Prostate Cancer Surgery

Retropubic prostatectomy is widely performed throughout urology as a successful treatment for all prostate cancer patients. Dr P Kovac, Dr P Chin and Dr R Rindani specialise in open retropubic prostatectomy at both Figtree Hospital and Wollonong Hospital.

Duration of procedure 2-3 hours with a hospital stay of 5-7 days. Recovery period of 4- 6 weeks before returning to work.

Laparoscopic Prostatectomy: Removal of prostate via laparoscopic incision (keyhole) in the lower abdomen.

Laparoscopic Prostatectomy

Laparoscopic prostatectomy is suitable to most prostate cancer patients, in patients with weight issues or previous major abdominal surgery this approach will need to be discussed with your surgeon. Dr P Kovac specialises in laparoscopic prostatectomy at Figtree Hospital.

Duration of procedure is 3-5 hours with a hospital stay of 2-4 days. A return to work 3-4 weeks post operatively.
