Prostate Cancer – Anatomy of the Prostate Gland
Dr. David Samadi, top prostate cancer doctor, takes a humorous approach to detailing the intricacy of prostate cancer surgery and difficult nature of reaching and safely removing the prostate.
He explains that the prostate gland, a walnut-size organ, is located just above the rectum and is attached to both the bladder and the urethra. Additionally, the prostate is completely surrounded by tiny, sensitive nerves that control sexual function.
Dr. Samadi’s lighthearted approach to explaining male anatomy stresses the complexity of the structure and the importance of surgeon expertise in performing robotic prostatectomy surgery.
