Diagnostic investigation

– Ultrasound
– Lab (PSA)
– Endoscopy (cystoscopy)
– Cytological examination
– Medical imaging (X-Ray, CT, MRI)
– Uroflow examination
– Ultrasound-guided prostate gland biopsy due to an elevated PSA level (Results within 2 days)

for evaluation of the upper and lower urinary tract (kidney, ureter, urinary bladder, urethra) as well as the internal and external sexual organs (prostate, seminal vesicle, testicle, penis).

Treatment

In many cases, laparoscopic surgery has replaced open surgery as the preferred treatment option. Keyhole surgery provides the possibility to reach the area of operation more gently and to operate with much higher precision.

The patient benefits from a much smaller access opening with significantly reduced loss of blood, which shortens the hospital stay considerably.

Any patient is potentially eligible for this form of surgery, with the exception of patients who had an extensive open abdominal surgery in the past.
