BPH surgeries are becoming less invasive and more effective than previous forms of surgical treatment (TUMT-microwave, TUNA, Indigo). Common surgeries for BPH include:
- Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) - TURP is the most common BPH surgery, which uses a scope to scrape obstructing prostate tissue out of the way. This procedure has been associated with excessive bleeding and the risk of erectile dysfunction.
- Greenlight Laser Prostatectomy (PVP) - An outpatient procedure, the Greenlight Laser Prostatectomy (PVP), uses a laser to remove obstructing tissue with little to no blood loss. PVP is not known to impact a patient’s sexual function. Urology Health Solutions’ Dr. Lotenfoe is an experienced provider of PVP. Dr. Lotenfoe is also a highly sought-after teacher of this method, as he has guided other practices in performing PVP.

Medications can reduce the impact of BPH symptoms, but may not deliver long-term results. Medications available to treat your BPH symptoms include:
- Tamsulosin (Flomax)
- Alfuzosin (Uroxatral)
- Finasteride (Proscar)
- Dutasteride (Avodart)
BPH medications may be combined for effectiveness. Discuss side effects and benefits of BPH medication by scheduling an appointment with Urology Health Solutions.
