Struggling with an enlarged prostate or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) You're not alone. BPH is a common issue affecting men as they age. The journey to managing BPH usually begins with oral medication, but sometimes, surgery might be needed.


Indications for surgery include severe difficulty in passing urine, recurring urinary tract infections, persistent troublesome urinary symptoms despite medication, and more. If these resonate with you, it's time to explore surgical options:


TURP: Traditional method of removing excess prostate tissue. May spend 1 night in hospital.


Green Light Laser Surgery: Laser technique to remove the prostate, suitable for patients on blood thinners. Outpatient home same day.


UroLift: Inserts small implants to enhance urine flow. Outpatient home same day.


Rezum: Steam treatment to destroy extra prostate tissue. Outpatient home same day.


Aquablation: Robot-guided water jet used to remove excess prostate tissue. Likely to spend 1 night in hospital.


Simple Prostatectomy: For very large prostates or if other complications are present. Spend 1 night in hospital.


Everyone's journey with BPH is unique and treatments need to be personalized. If you're seeking guidance, reach out to a healthcare provider. Your journey to better health starts with a simple call.
