Patient Testimonial for Robotic Radical Prostatectomy

Testimonial by Mr. Rukikaire Jaob

Treatment for: Prostate Cancer
Treated by: Dr. V. Surya Prakash
Patient location: Uganda

Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men, occurring in the prostate gland, a small gland located below the bladder. While early-stage prostate cancer is usually asymptomatic, symptoms such as frequent urination, weak urine flow, pain or burning sensation during urination, blood in semen or urine, urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control), faecal incontinence (loss of bowel control), erectile dysfunction, and pain in the lower back, hip, or chest may develop as the disease progresses.

Robotic radical prostatectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove the entire prostate gland, as well as surrounding tissue, in patients with localised prostate cancer (cancer that has not spread beyond the prostate gland). During the procedure, small keyhole incisions are made in the patient’s abdomen, and the robotic system, which consists of several robotic arms controlled by the surgeon, is then used to remove the prostate gland.

This procedure has several advantages over traditional open surgery, including less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster recovery time. Furthermore, the use of a robotic system allows for better visualisation of the surgical site and greater flexibility during the procedure, which can help reduce the risk of tissue damage. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and complications, such as bleeding, infection, urinary incontinence, and erectile dysfunction.

Mr. Rukikaire Jaob from Uganda successfully underwent Robotic Radical Prostatectomy for Prostate Cancer at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. V. Surya Prakash, Consultant Urologist, Laparoscopic, Robotic & Transplant Surgeon.
