Minimally Invasive Laser Prostate (TURP) Surgery in India

TURP Transurethral resection prostate

Minimally Invasive Laser Prostrate surgery, also known as Laser Prostatectomy or TURP surgery or Transurethral Resection of Prostrate, is a procedure used to remove the enlarged portion of prostate gland. The procedure involves removal of the section of the prostate that is blocking urine flow.

TURP is one of the most effective options for treating an enlarged prostate, a condition also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Conventional vs Laser Prostatectomy / TURP:

The Laser TURP procedure is much more advanced & beneficial than the conventional procedure. The differences in the two are:

  •   For the conventional TURP, the resectoscope, a combined visual and surgical instrument is used, whereas the Laser procedure involves use of advanced laser energy to cut excess gland, thus there is no loss of blood & shorter hospitalization is required
  •   Blood thinning agents have to be stopped a week to 10 days before the procedure for conventional TURP, which puts the heart at risk, whereas the laser TURP is done with the blood thinning agents on board, which is highly beneficial for cardiac patients.
  •   Conventional TURP allows tissue removal at only 1gram/min, whereas laser can vaporize tissue as fast as 3-4 grams/ min.
  •   For prostates larger than 100gm, open surgery is required in case of conventional TURP, whereas lasers can effectively perform surgery in such large prostate cases

Advantages of Laser TURP:

  1. Safer & Faster
  2. No blood loss
  3. Shorter hospital stay & faster recovery
  4. Highly beneficial for
    •   Patients on blood thinning agents like heparin, aspirin, clopidegrol etc.
    •   Patients with kidney dysfunction
    •   Patients whose prostate gland size more than 60 gm
    •   Patients who are at poor risk for anesthesia
    •   Patients with cardiac complications or who have undergone joint replacement surgery
