Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is also called BPH or Prostate Gland Enlargement. This is very common in older men. BPH is when the prostate gland becomes enlarged and can cause various urinary symptoms, such as block of flowing of urine, bladder infections, urinary tract infections, or kidney problems. There are many different surgical treatments and your physician will be able to help you decide which procedure is best for your situation.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for BPH

Men that have moderate to severe BPH symptoms are best suited for minimally invasive surgeries. These men typically have trouble urinating, blood in the urine, bladder stones, or urinary tract obstruction. Surgery is also a good option for those that have gone through therapy and tried medications that have not worked. 

You and your physician will determine which surgical option is best for you. The size of the prostate will play a big role in what surgery you will have. For example, large prostate glands are not able to have certain surgeries, and the same is true for small prostate glands.
