There are many treatment options available for men with benign, non-cancerous enlargement of their prostate (also known as “BPH”). These include medications, office-based microwave thermal heating, laser vaporization and transurethral resection (“TURP”). Very large glands, however, are best managed with open surgical removal. Although a very effective surgery, this operation traditionally required a several day hospital stay for recovery and a relatively high risk of intraoperative bleeding. Drs. Mordkin and Joel have now pioneered a new method for doing this operation called a single port laparascopic suprapubic prostatectomy, and they were the first surgeons in metropolitan Washington, DC to perform this procedure. Compared to the standard open approach, it affords a significantly reduced blood loss, dramatically smaller incision size and accelerated recovery period, allowing most patients to be discharged from the hospital within 48 hours.
