As the years go by, the prostate grows in all men , this is what is known as prostate hyperplasia. The main symptoms come from the obstruction to the exit of urine from the bladder, and this supposes: difficulty and delay in the beginning of urination, decrease in the caliber and force of the voiding stream, intermittent or prolonged urination, drip, rise by the night to urinate, among others.

It is a disease that can not be prevented since it is related to the production of testosterone and aging. And it is very common, so much so that the growth of the prostate is the second most frequent cause of surgery in men after over 65 years of age, just behind cataract surgery.

There are two treatment options: drug treatment and surgery. Surgery is the best treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia. The main mission of this surgery for the prostate is to eliminate the increase in tissue produced over the years and, therefore, eliminate that obstruction to the exit of urine from the bladder. Prostate surgery does not carry the significant risk of complications if they have traditional techniques.


Laser in prostate

The laser removes the enlarged prostate tissue and also produces a simultaneous photocoagulation of the blood vessels, practically preventing bleeding, which is the great concern of urologists in this surgery. The green laser was a real revolution 15 years ago. But, the new Cyber ​​Tulio laser has significantly improved the treatment of the prostate. It is a new generation of laser with substantial advantages: minimum hospital admission, minimum probability of bleeding and practically no incontinence and impotence.
