Simple Prostatectomy

When the prostate gland has grown too large for removal using less invasive techniques, a simple prostatectomy allows your surgeon to remove the inner part of the gland through a small surgical incision made below your belly button to just above the penis. The outer part of the prostate gland is left intact and closed with sutures.
