Surgical skill and extensive experience are crucial!
The conventional method, open radical retropubic prostatectomy is a surgical method that, through decades of use, has become the standard choice for the surgical treatment of clinically localised prostate carcinoma. This surgical method has been further developed, refined and improved over the years.
All surgeons at the Martini-Klinik are globally renowned and established experts in the use of this method. Some have performed several thousand prostate surgeries. The surgeon’s expertise is a decisive factor in the quality of the nerve-sparing work, which preserves the patient’s potency, and in keeping the urethral sphincter fully intact, which preserves the patient’s continence. Many surgeons across Germany and from abroad complete training at the Martini-Klinik focusing on the surgical details we have developed, especially our methods to spare the neurovascular bundle and the urethral sphincter.
