As with any type of surgery, the success of a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy depends, above all else, on the skill level of the surgeon. For this reason, many men from Cape Coral, Florida, seek treatment from the world-renowned surgeons at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. At Moffitt, we use the most advanced treatment techniques and technologies to achieve the best possible quality of life for our patients. Our surgeons perform a high number of laparoscopic procedures every year, during which they operate through tiny incisions using special surgical tools and small video cameras to view the precise area within the body. Like a traditional radical prostatectomy, a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is designed to remove the prostate, nearby tissue and seminal vesicles.
When you visit Moffitt from Cape Coral, FL, a team of cancer specialists will convene to evaluate your case and recommend the best treatment plan for you. This team includes:
- Medical oncologists
- Other specialists
Because we offer a comprehensive range of treatment options, our expert team can recommend the optimal approach for your condition, whether it’s a traditional open prostatectomy, a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy or a robotic-assisted prostatectomy. To complete a robotic-assisted procedure, a surgeon uses robotic arms for enhanced maneuverability and precision.
