Men from Boca Raton, Florida, with bladder cancer have access to a full range of cystoprostatectomy options at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. A cystoprostatectomy involves the surgical removal of the bladder, prostate, perivesical tissues and seminal tissues, and then creates an alternative way for urine to be collected from the bladder and stored before elimination. The three primary approaches to performing a cystoprostatectomy are:
- Open cystoprostatectomy – The traditional approach, performed through a single incision in the abdomen
- Laparoscopic cystoprostatectomy – Performed through small incisions using special instruments and a small video camera to complete the surgery in a way that minimizes the impact on the body
- Robotic-assisted laparoscopic cystoprostatectomy – Performed through small incisions using robotic arms for enhanced maneuverability and precision
