Cystoprostatectomy

Cystoprostatectomy is surgical removal of the urinary bladder and prostate gland to eliminate muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Because the prostate gland and bladder are closely located within the body, removal of the prostate is usually done at the same time as the bladder in males. Removal of the bladder and prostate together reduces the risk of tumor spillage and reduces the risk of leaving bladder cancer cells on the prostate gland if it were allowed to remain. This procedure can often be accomplished using robotically assisted surgery, typically allowing for less blood loss and quicker recovery.
