What is a radical cystectomy?

A cystectomy is a surgery done to remove the urinary bladder. In men, removing the entire bladder (radical cystectomy) usually includes the removal of the prostate and seminal vesicles. In women, radical cystectomy involves the removal of the bladder, uterus, ovaries and part of the vagina.

After having your bladder removed, your surgeon will also create a urinary diversion, which is basically a new way to store urine and have it leave your body. There are multiple ways that urine can be stored and eliminated after bladder removal surgery. Your doctor will help you decide which method works best for you.

Cystectomy is often performed to treat invasive or recurrent non-invasive bladder cancer. Cystectomy may also be performed to treat other pelvic tumors and some noncancerous conditions such as interstitial cystitis or congenital abnormalities.
