A simple prostatectomy is a bit of a misnomer. It is not removing the entire prostate and it is not merely a simple procedure. This procedure is sometimes required for very large prostates where a minimally invasive procedure would not effectively remove enough tissue to help alleviate symptoms. This is an open procedure that requires an incision and a short stay in the hospital. It is more invasive than other procedures but can more effectively treat very large prostates.
