Who can have laparoscopic prostate surgery?

ANSWER

You may be eligible if you have prostate cancer that hasn't spread outside of the prostate and isn't very aggressive. But if you have had previous open or laparoscopic pelvic surgery, even for another reason, you may not be able to have this surgery.
