The complete removal of the prostate radical prostatectomy is a possible therapy when the cancer is contained inside the prostate. This operation is at present the most frequently used and proven method. It is the method for the treatment of localised prostate cancer for which the most experience has been gathered. The Martini-Klinik is the world-wide leader in the number of prostatectomies performed. Doctors here have already operated on 22, patients.

Sincemore than 2, prostatectomies have been carried out annually in the Martini-Klinik. These figures are all the more impressive considering that in Germany less than 40 radical prostatectomies are carried out in half of the urological departments each year.

A centre does not need to provide a minimum sum of operations when applying for a quality certificate. It is, however, generally accepted that a large number of operative experiences are an absolute key factor for successful tumor control and optimal quality of life after such an operation. These side-effects occur when the neurovascular bundles which are situated very close to the prostate are damaged or removed during the operation, or when the sphincter muscle for urine control cannot be completely spared.

However, removal of the tumor from the prostate while retaining the prostate is not an option. These cannot be seen with the naked eye during the operation.

In order to establish if the tumor has extended through the capsule we perform a so-called frozen-section examination NeuroSAFE during the operation. This informs postoperativen Prostatakrebs if the nerves adjacent to the prostate can be spared or if they must also be removed.

Results concerning the rate of cure, continence and virility are shown here. These results can be explained to every patient based on his tumor's individual characteristics. Almost every patient's nerves are protected during operation to preserve the erectile function.

This is not possible if single cells of the tumor have already spread to the nerves, which are delicately attached to the prostate gland's sides. Based on this finding it is then decided whether the nerves on both sides can be preserved or have to be removed.
