The prostate is a small gland located in the pelvis between the penis and the bladder in front of the rectum.
The prostate produces a fluid that is important to nourish and protect sperm. In some cases, patients may suffer from conditions that require them to remove the prostate gland.
Here is the importance of prostatectomy surgery.
How much does prostatectomy cost at MILAD HOSPITAL in Khoy?
The cost of prostate surgery varies greatly from country to country. It also depends on the type of prostate surgery you choose. In the United States, prices range from $10,000 to $135,000.
However, at Khoy\'s MILAD HOSPITAL, it is possible to undergo prostatectomy at a lower cost as the prices range from 1000 to 1500 USD.
The steps of each prostatectomy surgery are different from the other.
However, there are some similarities between open surgery approaches. In general, the common steps include:
Removing the prostate gland from the surrounding tissues and removing the seminal vesicles*
Reattaching the urethra to the neck of the bladder*
Sometimes the surgeon removes the lymph nodes in the pelvis*
The surgeon might leave Jackson-Pratt drain in the belly to remove excess fluids and a catheter for draining urine*.
The difference between the operations comes in the location of the incision and sometimes in the used instruments (robotic arm or laparoscope may be used).
PROSTATIC SURGERY TIME
The timing of the prostatectomy depends mainly on the type of prostatectomy to be performed.
It usually takes 90-120 minutes to 4 hours to complete. Prostatectomy is usually done under general anesthesia.
