Expert radical prostatectomy surgery is available to prostate cancer patients in West Palm Beach, FL, at Moffitt Cancer Center, located just a short drive away in Tampa. Many patients travel to Moffitt to receive treatment from our highly skilled and experienced surgeons. Moffitt’s surgeons focus exclusively on their respective areas of expertise, so a patient can trust that his surgeon has performed many radical prostatectomy procedures. Due in part to our high patient volume, our surgeons have gained extensive experience, which translates to highly successful surgical outcomes for prostate cancer.
In general, Moffitt’s surgeons utilize two techniques for performing open traditional radical prostatectomy surgery, which are:
- Radical retropubic prostatectomy – This procedure involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland, nearby tissues and lymph nodes through a single, long incision in the lower abdomen.
- Radical perineal prostatectomy – This approach involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland through an incision in the perineum.
We also offer nerve-sparing and robotic radical prostatectomy surgery options. And furthermore, at Moffitt, each patient’s case is evaluated and continually reviewed by our tumor board of cancer specialists. This talented group of medical professionals meets weekly to monitor and refine a patient’s treatment plan as appropriate, and tailor the plan to meet the patient’s specific needs.
At Moffitt, one way we can ease the travel burdens on our out-of-town patients is by helping them to manage the logistics.
