With prostate cancer, treatments such as radiation and hormones can help, however surgery can be needed.
At Northern Urology our physicians are trained to perform seamless surgery to remove the prostate gland and any surrounding tissue that may be cancerous when prostate cancer is found. This surgery is done under general anesthesia. Recovery time can vary from 1 to 2 weeks to full recovery at 3-5 weeks. Throughout the process of prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment, surgery and recovery, our physicians and staff are there to guide you and ensure your best care.
