How is RRP different from open radical prostatectomy?

RRP and open radical prostatectomy both physically remove the entire prostate. In their goal  the RRP and open radical prostatectomy are the same. However, the RRP and open radical prostatectomy differ technically in terms of gaining physical access to the deep pelvis and visualization of the operative field. 

In contrast to open radical prostatectomy, the RRP does not require an abdominal incision and operative instruments are introduced through small Key Holes.RRP does not use  heavy retractors. Due to great optics and magnification, dissection is precise and surgeon can see even in the deepest areas and corners. 

In making use of good lighting, modern optics, magnification, single operative views, and finer instruments, RRP is a relatively bloodless, controlled, coordinated, and elegant operation.
