What is Prostate Enlargement Surgery ?
The prostate is a gland located underneath the bladder, in front of the rectum. It plays an important role in the part of the male reproductive system that produces fluids that carry sperm.
BPH stands for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, which is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate. It prevents urine from flowing via the urethra. Prostate cells multiply gradually in this instance. The prostate enlarges, putting pressure on the urethra. This condition is known by a variety of names, including enlarged prostate, BPH, and simply prostate enlargement.
Prostate enlargement is the most prevalent prostate condition for males over 50, according to the National Kidney and Urological Disease Information Clearinghouse. As people get older, the situation worsens. By the age of 60, more than half of men have BPH, and by the age of 85, the number has risen to 90%.
Surgery for partial or complete removal of the prostate is called a Prostatectomy. The most common causes for prostate surgery are prostate cancer and an enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
What are the Symptoms of Enlarged Prostate?
Some of the symptoms of prostate enlargement are:
- Incomplete bladder emptying feeling
- A slow or weak urinary stream
- Facing difficulty starting the urination
- Urinating frequently
- Urination by straining
- Continued dribbling of urine
- Urgency to urinate
- Frequent night urination
- The urinary stream starts and stops
- Urination by straining
- Continued dribbling of urine
BPH can potentially cause bladder and/or renal damage in rare circumstances.
Types of prostate surgery
There are different types of prostate surgeries and the goal of prostate surgery depends on your medical condition. For example, the goal of prostate cancer surgery is to remove cancerous tissue. The goal of BPH surgery is to remove prostate tissue and restore the normal flow of urine.
1. Open prostatectomy
Open prostatectomy is also known as traditional open surgery or an open approach. Your surgeon will make an incision through your skin to remove the prostate and nearby tissues.
There are two main approaches, as we explain here:
- Radical retropubic: Your surgeon will make the cut from your belly button to your pubic bone. In most cases, your surgeon will remove only the prostate.
- Radical perineal approach: Your surgeon will make a cut in the space between the rectum and scrotum. This is often done when you have other medical conditions that complicate retropubic surgery.
2. Laparoscopic approach
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive approach to prostate surgery. There are two main approaches for this kind of procedure as well:
- Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy: This surgery requires multiple tiny cuts so the surgeon can insert small surgical instruments. Your surgeon will use a thin tube with a camera to see into the area.
- Robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy: Some surgeries include a robotic interface. With this type of surgery, the surgeon sits in an operating room and directs a robotic arm while viewing a computer monitor. A robotic arm may provide more maneuverability and precision than the other procedures.
When is Prostate Enlargement Surgery required ?
If you have symptoms of an enlarged prostate, your doctor may prescribe medication or other treatments. If those treatments don’t work, they may recommend surgery. Prostate Surgery may be necessary if:
- you have slow urination
- your bladder never feels empty
- you feel an increased need to urinate at night
- you experience frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- you experience bleeding from your prostate
- you have a history of bladder stones
- you develop kidney damage
How is Prostate Enlargement Surgery done?
Prostate laser surgery
Prostate laser surgery primarily treats BPH without making any cuts outside of your body. Instead, your doctor will insert a fiber-optic scope through the tip of the penis and into your urethra. Then your doctor will remove prostate tissue that’s blocking urine flow. Laser surgery may not be as effective.
Similar to the laser surgery, endoscopic surgery doesn’t make any incisions. Your doctor will use a long, flexible tube with a light and lens to remove parts of the prostate gland. This tube goes through the tip of the penis and is considered less invasive.
Widening the urethra:
- Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for BPH: TURP is the standard procedure for BPH. A urologist will cut pieces of your enlarged prostate tissue with a wire loop. The tissue pieces will go into the bladder and flush out at the end of the procedure.
- Transurethral incision of the prostate (TUIP): This surgical procedure consists of a few small cuts in the prostate and bladder neck to widen the urethra. Some urologists believe that TUIP has a lower risk for side effects than TURP.
What is the Recovery after Prostate Enlargement Surgery like?
It is usually safe to return to basic everyday activities 1 to 2 weeks after prostate surgery procedures, and safe to return to strenuous activities after 1 to 2 months.
What Results Can I Expect from Prostate Enlargement Surgery?
Prostate surgery results are often long lasting.

Frequently Asked Questions
After a prostate enlargement procedure, patients usually stay in the hospital for three days. During this time, the medical staff keeps an eye on the patient for problems including post-TURP syndrome. The catheter used to drain the urine is usually left in place for a few days after surgery. Patients who undergo laser surgery may be required to stay overnight before returning home the next day.
After prostate surgery, a stay in India for 10 to 12 days is recommended.
No. It’s a benign condition, meaning it’s not carcinogenic and doesn’t lead to prostate cancer.
Each type of prostate enlargement surgery comes with its own set of dangers and side effects. Bleeding, infection, narrowing of the urethral stricture (urine tube), urine leakage (urinary incontinence), erectile dysfunction, and retrograde ejaculation are all typical surgery-related problems.
The following are some of the advantages of laser surgery over traditional procedures like as prostatectomy and TURP:
- There is a lower chance of bleeding.
- Quick Recovery
- The length of time spent in the hospital is reduced.
- The catheter is only required for a short period of time.
Prostate enlargement surgery usually takes four weeks or more to recuperate from. However, depending on the type of surgery performed, this time frame may vary. Most men are able to resume their normal activities six to eight weeks after TURP surgery. Laser surgery patients can return to normal activities sooner because the recovery time is shorter with minimally invasive procedures.
