Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition among older men, characterized by an enlargement of the prostate gland. This can cause bothersome urinary symptoms and impact quality of life. Suprapubic transvesical endoscopic resection of the prostate adenoma (STAR-P) is an innovative surgical procedure used to treat BPH.
STAR-P is a surgical procedure that involves removing the prostate adenoma through a suprapubic incision, allowing the surgeon to directly access the bladder. During the procedure, the surgeon uses an endoscope to visualize and remove the prostate adenoma, thus reducing urinary obstruction and improving urinary flow.
To understand if STAR-P is the most suitable treatment, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
