Laser surgery can offer several advantages over other HBPH treatment methods, such as transuretral prostate resection (TURP) and open prostatectomy.
Prostate laser surgery targets expanded prostate tissue and provides rapid relief from moderate to severe BPH, with less risk of major bleeding and fast recovery. The laser uses a concentrated light to spray excess tissue or eliminate the obstructive tissue of the prostate. This uninvasive procedure is beneficial for treating or preventing complications of BPH, including frequent urinary tract infections, bladder stones, the inability to empty your bladder and damage to kidney and bladder.
Prostate laser surgery can offer several advantages over other BPH treatment methods, such as transuretral prostate resection (TURP) and open prostatectomy. Benefits may include:
1.Shorter stay or without hospital
Prostate laser surgery can be performed on an ambulatory basis or with a stay at the one night hospital.
2.Lower risk of bleeding
Prostate laser surgery can be a good option for men who take drugs to finish their blood or who have a bleeding disorder that do not allow their blood to hower normally.
3.More immediate results
Improvements in urinary symptoms of laser surgery are noticable right away. This can take several weeks to months to see a noticeable improvement with medications.
The recovery of laser surgery usually takes less time than the recovery of turp or open surgery.
5.Less need for catheter
Enlarged prostate processing procedures typically require a tube (catheter) to drain bladder urine after surgery. With laser surgery, a catheter is usually necessary for less than 24 hours.
