Mr Fredrick, from Nigeria sharing his experience post his Urology treatment

Mr Fredrick, 69 year old from Nigeria, was diagnosed with urinary retention due to Prostate enlargement. For further treatment, he was advised to meet the specialists at Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai. Post clinical investigations he underwent Laser prostate surgery. The procedure was successfully performed by Dr Amol K Patil, Urologist and Transplant Surgeon along with a team of specialists. After the 3rd day of the operation, the catheter was removed and he started urinating normally. Prostate laser surgery is used to relieve moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate — a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). A laser passed through the scope delivers energy that shrinks or removes excess tissue that is preventing urine flow.
