Prostate Tests & Procedures

  1. Cryotherapy for Prostate Conditions

  2. Prostate Biopsy

    A prostate biopsy is a procedure in which tissue samples are removed with a special needle to determine if cancer or other abnormal cells are present.

  3. Prostate/Rectal Sonogram

    A sonogram uses ultrasound technology to allow quick visualization of the prostate and related structures from outside the body. It may be used to examine the prostate gland for evidence of cancer.

  4. Radical Prostatectomy
  5. Robotic Prostatectomy

    Your prostate can be removed several ways. One way is for the surgeon to make several smaller cuts and removing the prostate using a tiny camera and surgical tools. This is called a laparoscopic prostatectomy. When a surgeon uses a robot during the procedure, it's known as a robotic prostatectomy.

  6. Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)

    A transurethral resection of the prostate is a surgical procedure that uses a tiny instrument to remove portions of the prostate gland through the penis, requiring no external incision.
