Types of Minimally invasive Prostate (BPH) Surgery

 

REZUM Water Vapor Therapy

 

Recently approved by the FDA in 2015, makes it possible to perform a prostate surgery in 5 minutes under local anesthesia, for treatment of Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH); while preserving ejaculation and sexual function. 

This operation consists of throwing steam through an instrument into the enlarged area of the prostate; the vapor carries energy that will be diffused into the molecules which will be killed and discarded by the immune system.

 

TURP

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat prostate enlargement; this surgery is performed under general or spinal anesthesia and lasts for 30 to 60 minutes.

During this procedure, an instrument called a resectoscope is inserted through the tip of your penis and into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra); this instrument contains a microscope with light and trims away excess prostate tissue that’s blocking urine flow.

TURP is generally considered an option for men with moderate to severe urinary problems that haven’t responded to medication.

 

Green Light Laser

 

Greenlight prostate laser surgery is another treatment for BPH. 

This type of procedure uses laser light technology to heat up the bloodstream and vaporize the overpopulated cells around the prostate gland; your doctor inserts a scope through the tip of your penis into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra), and a laser passed through the scope delivers energy that removes excess tissue that is blocking the urine flow.

 

The most important advantage of this procedure is that it can be performed even if the patient is taking blood thinners; because stop those medications can expose the patient to risks. 

There are many other benefits when using this type of surgery such as minimal bleeding, short recovery period and possible preservation of antegrade ejaculation.
