Bilateral Nerve Sparing Radical Prostatectomy for Prostate Cancer

The bilateral nerve sparing radical prostatectomy is a less invasive surgical technique to treat early nonmetastatic prostate cancer, the most common cancer in America. The procedure reduces side effects of surgery including incontinence and sexual dysfunction.

The bilateral nerve sparing radical prostatectomy procedure uses smaller incisions with fewer complications than a traditional radical prostatectomy. Surgeons remove the prostate gland and any surrounding tissue that is at risk for cancer.
