Minimally Invasive Laser Prostate (TURP) Surgery in India

TURP Transurethral resection prostate

Minimally Invasive Laser Prostate surgery, also known as Laser Prostatectomy or TURP surgery or Transurethral Resection of Prostrate, is a surgery to remove part of the prostate gland. It is done to treat a condition of enlargement of the prostate gland. Laser surgery for enlarged prostate is done by passing special viewing fiber-optic device and instruments transurethrally (through the tip of penis) and does not involve any incisions. The procedure involves removal of the section of the prostate blocking the urine flow and improves the flow of urine through the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder outside of your body.

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

Why Laser TURP is popular :

  1. Safer & Faster
  2. No bleeding
  3. Shorter hospital stay & speedy 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
