Prostate Enlargement (BPH)

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. Over 70% of men in their 60s have BPH symptoms so it is very common1. While BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, it can greatly affect a man’s quality of life.enlarged-prostate-bph

The prostate is a male reproductive gland, about the size of a walnut that produces fluid for semen. The prostate surrounds the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. As the prostate enlarges, it presses on and blocks the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms such as:

  • Frequent need to urinate both day and night
  • Weak or slow urinary stream
  • A sense that you cannot completely empty your bladder
  • Difficulty or delay in starting urination
  • Urgent feeling of needing to urinate
  • A urinary stream that stops and starts 

BPH Treatments (all starting from $3500 USD)

If you have been diagnosed with an enlarged prostate due to BPH, there are several treatment options available. Consult your physician to determine which treatment is right for you.

Treatment Options Include:

Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP)

Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a treatment for men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The laser surgery removes blockages of urine flow. This treatment is done without any incisions on the body.
 

Urolift® System Treatment

The UroLift® System treatment is a minimally invasive approach to treating BPH that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue. Clinical data has shown that the UroLift System treatment is safe and effective in relieving lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH without any impact to sexual function.

Monopolar/Bipolar TURP   

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is a procedure to remove excessive growth of the prostate gland, resulting from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). The prostate gland plays an essential role in the functioning of the male reproductive system, secreting fluid into the urethra during ejaculation. It surrounds the urethra and is located immediately below the neck of the urinary bladder. Bipolar and monopolar transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) are both widely used for surgical treatment of enlarged prostate (BPH) .

Greenlight™ PVP Laser 

GreenLight™ Laser PVP (Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate) is a procedure used in the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), an enlargement of the prostate gland resulting in the 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 by secreting a fluid into the urethra during ejaculation.
