Treatments for Enlarged Prostate
GreenLight Laser Therapy
Greenlight laser prostatectomy is a safe, effective and efficient treatment to ease the urinary symptoms in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), enlargement of the prostate gland. It is a minimally invasive procedure which utilizes a 532nm wavelength laser to remove the excess prostate tissue blocking the urethra by vaporization.
RezūmTM is a minimally-invasive office procedure intended to relieve bothersome symptoms of BPH, otherwise knowns as enlarged prostate. The Rezūm system is a technology that uses hot, sterile water in the form of steam to treat obstructing prostate tissue in your urinary channel. This process is called thermotherapy.
Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)
The prostate gland is an organ found in men, surrounding the neck of the urinary bladder. The gland grows with age, but if it grows too big, it can exert pressure on the urethra (tube that drains urine) and may obstruct the flow of urine.
