Step 1 – Anesthesia: Enlarged prostate surgery takes 30 to 60 minutes depending upon the procedures by giving local or general anaesthesia to relieve pain.

Step 2 – The incision: The surgical procedure is recommended by the surgeon depending upon the patient symptoms and the size and shape of your prostate gland:-

  1. Photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP):- It’s a laser that used to vaporize the excess prostate tissue and enlarge the urinary channel.
  1. Holmium laser ablation of the prostate (HoLAP):- It’s similar to PVP procedure but uses a different type of laser.
  1. Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP):- It’s a laser that used to cut and remove the excess tissue from the urethra which is blocking.
  1.  Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP):- It’s performed by inserting a resectoscope through the urethra to remove an enlarged prostate piece by piece.
  1. Prostatic urethral lift (PUL) implants:- It’s a minimally invasive procedure that holds the enlarged prostate to decrease urinary obstruction and pain.

  1. Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy:- It's a surgical procedure in which the surgeon makes multiple tiny cuts so that he can put small surgical instruments view the prostate and tissues.
