Robotic Radical Prostatectomy for Cancer of the Prostate

The prostate lies at the apex of the bladder where it surrounds the urethra or tube that passes through the penis.

Together with the Seminal Vesicles it is responsible for the production of the semen. Sperm from the testes are added to this. Hence the prostate is essential for men to have children.

Once a man has finished having his family, the prostate has no useful function.
