Robotic partial Cystectomy - Dr T B Yuvaraja

A partial cystectomy is a procedure in which the surgeon removes part of your bladder, leaving enough of it so it can still hold enough urine for you to urinate comfortably.This procedure is used only when you have a cancerous tumor in your bladder that is not too large and is in a place where it can be removed without hurting bladder function. A partial cystectomy is rarely performed because in most cases bladder cancer involves several sites in the bladder and the risk of the cancer returning is much higher when part rather than all of the bladder is removed.
