A partial cystectomy is a procedure for removing part of your bladder, leaving enough of it so it can still hold enough urine for you to urinate comfortably. And nearby lymph nodes are also removed and examined for cancer spread. It is used to treat cancer that has invaded the bladder wall in just one area, where urine enters or leaves the bladder. For bladder cancer that has spread to the muscle layer, radical cystectomy is the best treatment for preventing the spread or recurrence of cancer. The main advantage of this surgery is that a person keeps their bladder and does not need reconstructive surgery.  Partial cystectomy was conventionally done by via an open surgery, which needs a big abdominal incision. Another technique, conventional laparoscopy, was less invasive.
