Prostatectomy is the surgical removal of all or part of the prostate gland. This operation can be performed for a variety of reasons, but often as a response to urinary retention or cancer. The amount to be removed depends on the patient's condition and can vary from trivial quantities of tissue to total/radical excision. A number of different surgical techniques, such as open or robotic-assisted surgery are possible, depending on availability of the latter.
