Prostatectomy is a surgical operation to partially or completely remove the prostate. The main type of surgery for prostate cancer is radical prostatectomy. In this operation, we remove the entire prostate gland and some of the surrounding tissue, including the seminal vesicles.

In the approach called Open Radical prostatectomy, we perform the surgery with a single long skin incision to remove the prostate and nearby tissues. 

In laparoscopic prostatectomy, we make a few small incisions and use special long surgical instruments to remove the prostate. We either hold the tools directly or use a control panel to precisely move the robotic arms that hold the tools. This is called Robot-assisted Radical Prostatectomy. 


Recovery after circumcision usually takes 7-10 days. It is recommended that you take 1 week off from school to recover healthily.

Shower can be taken 72 hours after the operation, but bathing should not be done until the wound is healed. Do not wet or rub the wound while showering. 

The penis may appear swollen and red as it heals.

For small babies, use frequent breastfeeding and/or the painkillers we have prescribed for you. Your prescription will be given to you after the procedure. 

When should you contact me after circumcision?
If you see signs that the penis is not healing well, for example:

Frequent bleeding or bleeding that does not stop.
