BPH Surgery: TURP vs. PVPDr. Samadi has seen prostates from every angle. His surgical background includes traditional surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and robotic prostatectomy. "With BPH, the prostate doesn't need to be removed. We essentially trim away excess prostate tissue to free the urethra and alleviate discomfort and urinary interruptions."During TURP surgery (transurethral resection of the prostate) Dr. Samadi uses a surgical wire loop inserted through the urethra to remove small pieces of the prostate. Recovery typically involves a one-night hospital stay and a short-term catheter. Significant improvement can be seen immediately and BPH symptoms are usually fully reversed in just a few months.
