Laparoscopic prostate surgery. Close-up of surgeons using laparoscopes inserted into a male patient's abdomen to remove the patient's prostate. The procedure is a radical prostatectomy, usually carried out in cases of prostate cancer. The prostate is a gland just beneath the bladder, surrounding the urethra. This is minimally invasive, or keyhole, surgery and requires minimal aftercare.
