Laser Prostate Surgery


Prostate laser surgery is used to treat moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia) (BPH).
During prostate laser surgery, your doctor inserts a scope into the tube that transports urine from your bladder through the tip of your penis (urethra).
Lasers generate precise and strenuous heat by using concentrated light. Prostate laser surgery comes in a variety of forms, including

    • Prostate photoselective vaporisation (PVP).

    The urinary channel is enlarged by melting (vaporising) excess prostate tissue. This procedure is typically used to treat mild to moderately enlarged prostates.

      • Holmium laser prostate ablation (HoLAP)
          This procedure is similar to PVP but employs a different laser.
    • Prostate enucleation with a Holmium laser (HoLEP).

The excess prostate tissue that is blocking the urethra is cut and removed using a laser. The prostate tissue is then cut into small pieces that can be easily removed with another instrument.

Why it’s done?

Prostate laser surgery alleviates urinary symptoms caused by BPH, such as:

                • Urinate frequently and urgently
                • Starting urination is difficult
                • Urination that is slow (prolonged)
                • Nighttime urination has become more frequent
                • Urinating repeatedly and then stopping
                • The sensation that you are unable to completely empty your bladder
                • Infections of the urinary tract.

Laser surgery may also be performed to treat or prevent complications associated with blocked urine flow, such as:

                • Urinary tract infections that reoccur
                • Damage to the kidneys or bladder
                • Inability to control urination or to urinate at all
                • Stones in the bladder
                • You have blood in your urine


Prostate Laser surgery has several advantages over other treatments for BPH. Medication can take several weeks to months to produce noticeable results. Urinary symptoms improve almost immediately after laser surgery. The advantages of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and open prostatectomy over traditional surgery include:

                • Minimal Blood Loss – Laser surgery may be an option for men who take blood thinners or have a bleeding disorder that prevents their blood from clotting normally.
                • A shorter or no stay in the hospital – The best Prostate Laser surgery in Lucknow can be performed as an outpatient procedure or with only an overnight hospital stay.
                • Quick Recovery –Laser surgery usually takes less time to recover from than TURP or open surgery.
                • Less need for a catheter – Following surgery to treat an enlarged prostate, a tube (catheter) is usually used to drain urine from the bladder. A catheter is usually required for less than 24 hours during laser surgery.

What to Expect Before Having Enlarged Prostate Laser Surgery

The patient is either given general anaesthesia or spinal anaesthesia prior to surgery. The patient will be unconscious during the procedure if general anaesthesia is used, but conscious if spinal anaesthesia is used. The type of laser and technique used determine the outcome of prostate laser surgery. Furthermore, the cost of prostate laser surgery is determined by the method used by the doctor.


Prostate laser surgery is a well-accepted procedure that improves urinary flow in the majority of men. In general, the consequences are often felt for a long time. However, this procedure does not always destroy all of the prostate tissues that obstruct urine flow, and the remaining tissues may grow back after some time, necessitating further treatment. Patients should contact their doctor if their urinary symptoms worsen.
