Urological Treatment Details
Perineal Prostatectomy:

In this type of surgery, your doctor removes the prostate through an incision between your scrotum and anus

With this method, the surgeon is not able to check the lymph nodes for cancer and nerve-sparing surgery is more difficult to do. This type of surgery is not used very often.
