A radical prostatectomy is a surgical operation to remove the prostate gland from cancer.

The classic, historic way to do it is through an incision in the lower abdomen. There's a newer way, and the new way involves a laparoscopic approach, that is putting in small tubes through the belly through very small openings and removing the prostate through a small incision.

Today we use a robot to help guide those arms, and the robot has these wristed instruments, so it makes it really easy for a surgeon to work deep in the pelvis, inside the man, where the prostate is located
