Laser Treatment For BPH

Advancement in laser technology has created a revolution in the field of prostate surgery. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlargement of prostrate gland (gland present between bladder and penis). Prostate gland secretes fluid that is used to nourish and protect sperms. When the size of prostate is increased, it will lead to the blockage of urethra. Urethra is the tube that is used to carry out urine from bladder. BPH is commonly seen among older men who are in their late 70’s. BPH is caused due to imbalance in hormone level or cell growth. It is a non cancerous growth. BPH can be treated using laser. Laser treatment for BPH is provided by Dr. Pradeep Rao one the best urologist in India, who uses latest ThuLEP technology for treatment.

Laser Treatment for BPH

In some cases the BPH may block the bladder, making it difficult to urinate. This may lead to infection, kidney stones or kidney damage.

Laser Treatment for BPH
Laser treatment for BPH is very beneficial. Various types of laser devices can be used to treat BPH. ThuLEP (Thulium Laser Enucleation of Prostate) is the latest procedure that uses 2010 nm-wavelength thulium laser to conduct through saline to enable the incision and coagulation of prostatic tissue. ThuLEP is more safe and efficient compared to TURP and open prostatectomy.
