This is a prospective, randomized controlled trial to compare cancer control and health-related quality of life following pelvic fascia-sparing radical prostatectomy versus standard radical prostatectomy.

The investigators hypothesize that pelvic fascia-sparing radical prostatectomy will have similar cancer control (primary outcome) and sexual function outcomes; and significantly better urinary function, penile shortening/deformity and inguinal hernia risks as compared to radical prostatectomy.
