Prostate Laser Surgery

What is Prostate Laser Surgery?

This can become very uncomfortable for men who reach advanced age; however, the solution can be found in the modern tools we use to treat such conditions.

Apart from the medical treatments, minimally invasive procedures are available in order to provide the best management approach for benign prostate conditions including Prostate Laser Surgery. Those type of surgeries are very efficient in relieving the symptoms of an enlarged prostate.

Types of Minimally invasive Prostate (BPH) Surgery TURP

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat prostate enlargement. Although many techniques have emerged during the past few years, it is still considered the main procedure for patients suffering from BPH. During this type of surgery, the patient is put under general or spinal anesthesia and a resectoscope is inserted into the urethra until it reached the enlarged prostate gland. This instrument contains a microscope with light and cuts off the extra tissue around the gland until the urethra is no longer restricted. The procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes depending on the prostate size and expertise of the surgeon.

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 solution for patients requiring symptom relief secondary to BPH. It also provides the essential advantage of performing the procedure while the patient is on blood thinners like anti-platelets and anticoagulants. In many cases, stopping such medications puts the patient at significant medical risks. Using this technology eliminates such risks by allowing the surgeon to perform the procedure without stopping those medications.

This type of procedure uses laser light technology to heat up the bloodstream and vaporize the overpopulated cells around the prostate gland. There are many other benefits when using this type of surgery such as minimal bleeding, short recovery period and possible preservation of antegrade ejaculation.


In late 2015, the FDA approved Rezum as a treatment for BPH in 5 minutes 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. It lasts 5 to 10 minutes under local anesthesia and the number of vapor ejections depends on the volume of the prostate. This minimally invasive procedure doesn’t cause complications; and no need to be hospitalized.
