Urologic disease can involve congenital or acquired dysfunction of the urinary system – a system which is related to the processing and carrying urine out of the body. They can affect men,women and children of all ages.

The following are some of the common urologic disorders and diseases in males:-

  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia(BPH)
  • Incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections(UTI)
  • Kidney and ureteral  stones
  • Prostate cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Bladder prolapse
  • Haematuria
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Overactive bladder
  • Prostatitis


Benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH) is a condition in men in which the prostate gland is enlarged ( non cancerous). It is the most common prostate problem for men older than age 50. As the prostate enlarges, the gland presses against and pinches the urethra. The bladder wall becomes thicker. Eventually, the bladder may weaken and lose the ability to empty completely, leaving some urine in the bladder. The narrowing of the urethra and urinary retention(the inability to empty the bladder completely) cause many problems associated with BPH. Men with BPH may experience a frequent urge to urinate. They may also have a weak stream of urine when they do go and a feeling that the bladder is not empty after urination. The treatment includes surgery if it is severe. At Greater Kailash Hospital Indore, BPH is dealt with all types of latest LASER surgeries for the resection of prostate :-

  • Green Light Laser Photovaporisation of prostate
  • Holmium Laser Enucleation of prostate(HOLEP)
  • Trans urethral resection of prostate(TURP)


Green Light Laser Photovaporisation of prostate.

Green light laser surgery for the prostate also known as Photoselective vaporization of prostate involves, using a state of art Green light laser in the treatment of enlarged prostate or BPH. This latest technology is  different to traditional surgery as it has fewer side effects and quicker recovery times. This treatment is sometimes referred to as “Bloodless Therapy” as the laser seals blood vessels as it resects the prostatic tissued.

Green light laser therapy can be useful for all men with BPH who require surgery or who are not responding to medication therapy. This therapy is especially advantageous for patients who are taking blood thinning medications for cardiac or neurological indications.

Holmium Laser Enucleation of prostate(HOLEP)

During HoLEP, a laser is used to precisely remove the obstructive portion of the prostate, similar to open surgery without the need for incisions. A separate instrument called a morcellator is then used to cut the prostate tissue into easily removable fragments. The obstruction is relieved immediately with superior haemostasis, no risk of TUR syndrome , and a minimal hospital stay.  HoLEP is an effective and less invasive alternative to older, more traditional methods of removing prostate obstructions. In addition, HoLEP preserves removed tissue for microscopic examination.Utilizing this technique even the largest of glands can be effectively treated with minimul morbidity. After the procedure, pathologists can examine the tissue for the presence of other conditions, including prostate cancer.

Trans urethral resection of prostate(TURP)

 During TURP, a combined visual and surgical instrument (resectoscope) is inserted through the tip of the penis and into the tube that carries urine from the bladder (urethra). The urethra is surrounded by the prostate. Using the resectoscope, the doctor trims away excess prostate tissue that's blocking urine flow and increases the size of the channel that allows the patient to empty his urinary bladder.
