Training in laparoscopic urology, extensive experimental work, and dedicated surgical performance constitute the foundation of advanced laparoscopic urology, which is currently a reasonable surgical option in pediatrics, reconstructive surgery, and oncology. This article discusses topics related to laparoscopic approaches for radical prostatectomy, focusing on their introduction, development, accomplishments, and current standards and future goals for the minimally invasive treatment of urologic diseases. We highlight the dynamic status of the laparoscopic approach for radical prostatectomy (pure or robotic-assisted) that constitutes one of the most rapidly evolving fields in urology.
