Laser Prostate Surgery,Laser Prostatectomy, TURP (Transurethral Resection of the Prostate)-Technologically Advanced Prostate Treatment.

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical procedure performed to remove the whole or only a portion of the prostate gland that is enlarged.

Laser TURP

  • TURP is now the second most common surgical procedure in men over age 65.
  • Today Laser TURP is considered as the “Gold Standard” among all available treatments for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is a very common condition wherein the prostate gland becomes enlarged as a man ages.
  • In United States more than 30,000 men die because of prostate cancer each year
  • TURP is a surgical procedure for men with symptomatic bladder outlet obstruction secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia, cancer, or bladder neck contracture.
  • This patient population has a greater anaesthetic risk because of a greater prevalence of coexisting cardiovascular and pulmonary problems.
  • TURP carries unique complications because of the need to use large volumes of irrigating fluid for the endoscopic resection.

Types of Highly Advanced Minimally Invasive Laser Prostate Surgery at World Class Hospitals in India

Laser TURP1. Green Light Laser PVP : Photoselective Vaporization of theProstate is a procedure used in the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), an enlargement of the prostate gland, resulting in urethral restriction.

The prostate is a small gland circling the urethra immediately below the neck of the bladder. It has a vital function in the male reproductive system bysecreting a fluid into the urethra during ejaculation. The advantages of this approach over the traditional TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) are many:

  • PVP is done on an outpatient basis.
  • Blood loss is virtually nothing.
  • Patients live with a urinary catheter postop for only one day.
  • The irrigant used is much less likely to cause electrolyte abnormalities.

Laser TURP2. Holmium Laser : Holmium laser procedures use laser energy to alleviate BPH symptoms with fewer complications than invasive surgery by ablating or removing enlarged prostate tissue with high powered laser energy. Holmium laser procedures are generally performed under spinal, epidural or general anesthesia.

After receiving anesthesia, your urologist will pass a camera through a tube placed in your urethra, enabling him or her to view the bladder and prostate. The Holmium laser fiber (small flexible tube) is also passed through the same tube. The enlarged prostate tissue is then ablated with a very high degree of precision. The treatment is usually done in an outpatient setting and may require a catheter for up to 23 hours following the procedure.

How Laser TURP is superior to conventional TURP?

  • Laser TURPConventional TURP

    Blood thinning agents have to be stopped a week to 10 days before the procedure. This puts the heart at risk for a second attack.

    Conventional TURP allows tissue removal at 1gram/min. Hence gland size more than 60 gm is converted from an endoscopic to open procedure.

    conventional TURP utilizes electrical energy thereby making it unsafe & slow procedure.

    Since it is a open procedure it requires large amount of blood and chances of blood loss are more.

    Not an ideal option for Large Prostate Glands.

  • Laser TURPLaser TURP

    Shorter Hospital Stay


    DIODE laser can vaporize 3-4 grams/min. Here normal saline is used as an irrigant which on absorption does not cause TURP syndrome. Hence prostate gland beyond 100 grams can also be managed endoscopically using laser energy.

    Laser TURP in general is safer and faster.

    The benefits of this procedure are that there is no blood loss.

    An ideal procedure for large prostate glands.

What People say about us

Emmanuel Okonkwo“To discover that I suffered from enlarged Prostate which had some cancer involvement was quite a shock for me just after I turned 55 years last December. . I then went to the Internet and found IndiaCarez website amongst several several others. I sent e-mails off with my specific problem outlined to three sites. Almost instantly I received a response from IndiaCarez asking for my medical reports, which I mailed to them. Just the next day I got another email with so much of valuable information about the treatment options I had and the profiles of the doctors and number of surgeries performed by them. I followed their advice for a Robotic Prostate Surgery that would also take care of my other concerns about cancer spill and impotency.

IndiaCarez helped me immensely to apply for India visa and make arrangements to fly to India and have the procedure done.
