BPH Treatment With Button TURP

Minimally Invasive Button TURP Shrinks Enlarged Prostate, Says David B. Samadi, MD, Top NY Robotic Prostate Surgeon

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- As men age, changes in urinary habits are par for the course. For some men, significant changes in urinary patterns are caused by an enlarged prostate, which is diagnosed as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Mild-symptom BPH is treated with medication to relax the prostate muscles and shrink the enlarged prostate. In more obstructive cases, Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) or Button TURP is often recommended for the surgical treatment of BPH.

Button TURP is a minimally invasive BPH treatment that removes excess prostate tissue and frees the urinary tract. Not all men with BPH require surgery, but for those who do, TURP is considered a highly effective treatment. David B. Samadi, MD, Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, is a NY prostate expert with extensive experience in all prostate surgeries, including Button TURP and robotic surgery for prostate cancer.

"Button TURP is a gold standard BPH treatment," said Dr. Samadi. "With very little disruption, we can remove the excess prostate tissue and give men tremendous relief from their nagging urinary issues."

What is BPH?

Perhaps the most common cause of urinary obstruction in men, BPH occurs in nearly half of all men by age 50 and nearly all will experience a degree of BPH by their 80s. An enlarged prostate can also cause elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, though it is not an indication of prostate cancer nor is it considered a precursor to prostate cancer.

This age-related condition is characterized by urinary changes such as a weak or interrupted stream, urinary leaking, and frequent urination, particularly at night. When medication is not successful in reducing BPH symptoms, Button TURP is recommended.

The Button TURP for BPH treatment

Button TURP is an incision-free procedure typically performed on an outpatient basis. With the patient comfortably under anesthesia, Dr. Samadi inserts a surgical scope through the urethra and guides it toward the prostate. Named for the small button-shaped device at the end of the scope, Button TURP heats and dissolves -- essentially vaporizes -- excessive prostate tissue. Urinary obstructions are cleared and the remaining healthy tissue is sealed, resulting in minimal bleeding, no transfusions, and rapid recovery.

After Button TURP, Dr. Samadi's patients return home the same day. Most patients resume their daily routines in a few days and more strenuous activity within a few weeks. With Dr. Samadi's expert TURP procedure, many patients enjoy no further symptoms for as many as 10-15 years. Dr. David Samadi performs his expert Button TURP procedure at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan.
