A new approach to prostatectomy in Kenya

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A newly introduced technique of perineal prostatectomy is presented and the results of 32 cases are reported. This operation takes little time, is simple, and has a place in modern urological practice, in particular, in the developing countries of the third world. Here surgery is of necessity often undertaken by district medical officers with little formal surgical training, in hospitals, with limited and often rudimentary facilities.
