Endoscopic Treatment of Prostate Gland in Gurgaon

Fewer than 10% of men will need surgery because of prostate enlargement. To cure prostate cancer, the TURP operation only removes the prostate's urethra-facing sections while leaving the rest of it intact. A resectoscope is introduced into the penis, urethra, and prostate during the procedure to perform the resection surgery. Using an electrically activated wire loop, the resectoscope cuts away the adjacent prostate tissue once positioned correctly in the urethra. There is no need to make an incision in the skin for this operation.

The Symptoms and Signs of BPH

Prostate enlargement can cause a wide range of symptoms, but the most prevalent include:

  • Having to pee more frequently (frequency)
  • Having to urinate numerous times during the night (nocturia)
  • Urgently need a bathroom break (urgency)
  • Urinary insufficiency may be a symptom (hesitancy)
  • a dwindling flow
  • Urine flow is disrupted (intermittency)
  • Inappropriate dribbling on one's pants
  • Urinary discomfort or a burning sensation
  • Incontinence in the urinary system (Lack of control)
  • Having the impression that your bladder hasn't completely emptied.
  • Inconveniences associated with urination

A symptom score categorises these symptoms into mild, moderate, and severe severity levels. The degree of blockage or symptoms is not always related to the size of the prostate. 

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment of BPH

After thorough examinations and investigations, the Max Healthcare urologist determines each patient's best course of action. Prostate enlargement can be treated in two ways:

a) Alternatives to Surgery

For years, scientists have been trying to find a technique to decrease or stop the growth of prostates without resorting to surgical intervention. The FDA has approved several medications to treat the most prevalent symptoms of a swollen prostate. With these drugs, relaxing the muscles of the prostate and the bladder neck can increase urine flow and lessen bladder outlet obstruction.

b) Medical Intervention

Patients with prostate enlargement were generally advised by their doctors that the best long-term remedy was to have the enlarged portion of the prostate removed. Prostate enlargement surgery merely removes the enlarged tissue pressing on the urethra. The blockage and partial emptying caused by prostate enlargement are usually alleviated by surgery. 

  • TURP (Transurethral Resection of Prostate)

This procedure does not necessitate an external incision. The surgeon uses a resectoscope to access the prostate after administering regional anaesthesia. 

  • Other Endoscopic procedures

It is possible to do TUIP (Transurethral Incision of Prostate) and TUEVP (Transurethral Electro vaporization of Prostate) with an endoscope. TUEVP is comparable to laser surgery in terms of efficacy.

  • Laser-assisted surgical procedures

Using an endoscopic technique similar to that used in open surgery, the prostate gland is excised using the HO Laser (Holmium Laser). A hospital stay and anaesthesia are required, just as they are for TURP. 

c) Open Surgery

Open surgery, which necessitates an incision, may be utilised in rare instances when a transurethral technique is not an option.
