1. Endoscopic resection of benign prostatic hypertrophy

Surgical treatment is still the optimal solution, completely solving the cause. Previously, people had to open surgery, remove the tumor.

Laparoscopic resection of benign prostatic hypertrophy is a method of removing prostate tumors by means of a transurethral endoscopic cutter. This surgery is performed under either spinal anesthesia or general anesthesia. The surgeon inserts a laparoscope into the prostate gland through the urethra to cut the lobes of the prostate into small pieces for suction out of the body. Then, the cut area is stopped bleeding with an electric knife.
