BPH: The Other Prostate Problem

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.

PVP is a less invasive BPH prostate surgery option performed on an outpatient basis. Using a high-powered laser light, also inserted through the urethra, Dr. Samadi vaporizes excess prostate tissue constricting the urethra. Catheterization is usually shorter than with TURP, BPH symptoms improve just a day or so after the procedure, and patients return to their normal routine fairly quickly.

"There are medications available to treat BPH in its early stages," says Dr. Samadi, "but often men with severe BPH require surgery for true symptom relief. Both TURP and PVP offer highly safe and effective recovery options. I encourage men with BPH-like symptoms to seek diagnosis and explore treatment with an experienced prostate surgeon."

Dr. David Samadi is Vice Chairman, Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, where he leads the nation in robotic prostate cancer surgery and BPH surgery. www.roboticoncology.com
