What’s the Best Prostate Procedure?

By: Dr. Gary Bellman on March 11, 2013, 12:50 pm

When a man ages, his prostate enlarges; a condition referred to as BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy). For many years, there was a procedure called a TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) also referred to as a roto-rooter.
Today, there are more advanced procedures available- microwave therapy (cooled thermotherapy), prostiva, and Green-Light laser. Of all the procedures, the green-light laser with the new XPS fiber has proven to be the most effective and durable procedure.
The only downside of the green-light is retrograde ejaculation, which is essentially the loss of fluid with sex.
