Prostate Surgery

Prostate surgery involves surgical removal of part or all of the

prostate

and is performed by a

Urologist

. When men reach their mid-forties, the prostate gland begins to enlarge. This condition,

benign prostatic hyperplasia

(BPH), affects the

urethra

and makes urination difficult. An operation called transurethral resection of the prostate removes the prostate tissue that is blocking the urethra.

Prostate Cancer

: If cancer occurs, removing part of all of the prostate is a way to eliminate the cancer when it is confined to the prostate. Surgeries include transurethral resection of the prostate (

TURP

),

laser resection

and

prostatectomy

.
