Dr. Ferzli's Procedures
Specializing in Minimally-Invasive Surgery
The prostate is a gland that is located just below the bladder. The gland surrounds a portion of the urethra, the tube through which urine passes from the bladder to the penis. As part of a man's reproductive system, the prostate produces some of the fluid that makes up semen.
Prostatectomy surgical removal of the prostate may also be performed using laparoscopic techniques. This diagram shows a reconstruction of the bladder neck, after laparoscopic prostate removal.
