Surgical Therapy Surgical therapy by operation is possible in cases with no or inadequate response to medical therapy.

Surgical therapy can be used in patients who are not responding to medical therapy, who initially responded, however, the response became inadequate over time, and who cannot use medication due to side effects. Furthermore, surgical therapy should also be planned for patients with bladder stone, recurrent bleeding from urinary tract, frequent urinary tract infection and cannot empty urine at all due to prostate enlargement.

The determination of the surgical method is based on the patient’s age, concomitant medications, comorbidities and prostate size.

The options for surgical therapy of prostate enlargement include conventional methods (transurethral prostate resection and open prostatectomy) and laser methods.
