Radical Prostatectomy


It is important you read this information carefully before the operation so that you fully understand the operation and effect it will have on you.

If you have any questions or concerns about the procedure you can contact the Urology Nurse Specialist, Urology Registrar or Consultant by calling the Hospital. The specialist nurse is there to help you through the whole process.

Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)

What is the prostate gland?

The prostate gland is a reproductive organ present in men. It sits at the outlen (base) of the bladder and surrounds the tube through which you pass urine (the urethra). Its role is to produce part of the semenal fluid (ejaculate) to provide nutrition to sperm.

Laparoscopic Nephrectomy (keyhole surgery for removal of kidney)

Why remove the kidney?

The kidneys are a pair of organs at the back of the abdomen that filter the blood to remove waste products, which they convert to urine.

Intravesical BCG

BCG is a type of immunotherapy drug and doctors aren’t sure exactly how it works in bladder cancer. It may make the bladder react in a way that triggers the immune system (helps fight infection and disease) to get rid of cancer cells.
