Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

What is involved in surgical treatment?

When pharmacological therapies are unsuccessful, surgery can be used: the most common interventions are open prostatectomy (adenomectomy) surgery and transurethral resection - a mini invasive operation that involves prostate resection through the urethra. Other techniques are under investigation, such as prostate transurethral vaporization, transurethral microwave thermotherapy and laser resection or enucleation, and some of these new techniques are finding a place in urology practice.
