What are the latest advancements in Prostate Cancer surgery?

Detection of early and operable Prostate Cancers is globally on the rise, thanks to the diagnostic and imaging modalities. Surgery in the form of Radical Prostatectomy remains the core and best form of treatment with the intent of cure, for suitable patients, having an organ-confined disease.

Traditionally these surgeries for prostate removal were done by a large incision extending from Pubic Symphysis right till the Umbilicus. These surgeries have always been demanding as it needs suturing in a narrow space in the pelvis which is why it requires a large incision.

In the era of minimally invasive surgery, this, later on, was taken over by Robotic Surgery which involved very small cuts on the abdomen. However, this engages a huge cost to the patient, about Rs. 2-2.5 Lakhs extra which comes in the form of disposable consumables and Robotic Arms. Robot in itself is a huge investment for a hospital which justifies the very high cost of Robotic surgery.

To beat this cost, at Narayana Health, we use a Laparoscopy technique at just Rs. 30,000 extra to Open Surgery. This is done at very few centers in India with all the benefits to the patient in terms of small scars similar to those in robotic surgery at nearly the same cost as for open surgery. The patient goes through very less pain with a very good cosmesis and stays in the hospital is limited to just 5-6 days with early recovery and at a very affordable cost.
