Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men, which appears mainly after the age of 40, and prostate cancer ranks second on the statistical scale of mortality. It usually proceeds asymptomatically, and the man does not even suspect that he has cancer. And the doctor is mostly treated in the late stages of the disease when surgical interventions are no longer indicated. Doctors operate only in cases when they are convinced that the cancer has not spread.

It has long been known that laparoscopic surgeries have several advantages: patients are discharged from the medical center on the third day without serious postoperative problems and pain. The advantages of laparoscopic removal of the prostate are incomparably greater, and in terms of preserving the quality of life of a man are invaluable.
