Options for Enlarged Prostate

There are some in-office procedures available for enlarged prostate, such as a microwave, whereby a catheter burns prostate to open up the cavity and allow urination. Dr. Samadi is not fond of this treatment as it creates irritative symptoms, which can become difficult to treat later on. Dr. Samadi discusses Transurethral Needle Ablation of the Prostate (TUNA), whereby needles are put into the prostate to burn it. Patients generally do well with it. But if the prostate is enlarged, medications won’t work. He believes the best in-office treatment is GreenLight Laser Therapy, which is less invasive and does not require resection of the prostate. Samadi also discussed Transurethral Resection Of The Prostate (TURP), which is used to open up the channel for better urination.
