Surgery for prostate cancer is done to remove it if it has not spread to outside the prostate gland. Radical prostatectomy is the widely used surgical treatment for prostate cancer. In this process the entire prostate gland is removed along with some lateral tissue. The lateral tissues are removed to check if cancer is spread to those areas. There are two ways for conducting the surgery.

  • open surgery

  • laparoscopic surgery

Depending upon several aspects like age, severity of cancer cells and lifestyle of the patient there are various techniques of removal of prostate cancer.

1-Nerve sparing surgery

This prostate cancer surgery is applicable for the patients where the surgeon thinks the prostate is only limited to the gland.

2-Laparoscopic surgery

In this technique the whole prostate gland is removed along with lateral tissue

3-Robot surgery

In robot  prostate surgery the surgery is done as the name indicates. This surgery turns out to be accurate along with less post surgical pain.

Who can be considered for prostate cancer surgery?

Patients under the age of 75 are considered for the prostate surgery. At least 10 years of further life expectancy is required for the prostate cancer surgery to be done. Another criteria is that the cancer is limited to only prostate.

 Life post surgery

If the cancer is limited to only prostate gland the chance of life expectancy increases up to 10 years. Incase the cancer is spread beyond the gland then further therapies are recommended.

Recovery time and cost

People who are visiting India for prostate cancer treatment should have at least two weeks time in their hands. They need to stay in the hospital for 3-4 days post surgery. A regular check up with the doctor is a must to be sure about the cancer not returning.


The prostate cancer surgery cost in India is affordable and vary according to the locality and facilities.
