Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, is an extremely common condition that affects roughly half of men over 60, and an estimated 90% of men in their 70's and 80's.
Although medication can be effective in treating BPH, surgery is often necessary to effectively address this condition. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the standard treatment for enlarged prostate and involves surgically removing the excess tissue from the enlarged prostate gland. In the past, this procedure carried considerable risk for patients, but today, urologist Dr. Mark Hong proudly offers an innovative, minimally invasive form of laser TURP at his Phoenix practice.
Dr. Hong has in-depth training and experience using the Greenlight XPS™ system, a state-of-the-art technology used to treat an enlarged prostate. Benefits of the minimally invasive procedure include reduced discomfort, faster recovery and less risk. To learn whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, schedule a consultation at our practice today.
