Surgical Management

Surgery for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) carries with it various risks and these should be discussed with Dr Swindle prior to making a decision.

Prostate surgery may be recommended if you have:

  • Incontinence
  • Recurrent blood in the urine
  • Inability to fully empty the bladder (urinary retention)
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Decreasing kidney function
  • Bladder stones
  • Bothersome symptoms not responding to medicines

The choice of which surgical procedure is recommended is most often based on the severity of your symptoms and the size and shape of your prostate gland. Most men who have prostate surgery have improvement in urine flow rates and symptoms.

Standard options for the surgical management of BPH include:

  • GreenLight Laser Prostatectomy
  • Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
