Prostate Infection 


Prostate infection, a challenge in medical science, is a major cause of prostatitis, whether it be bacterial or nonbacterial. TURP surgery and prostatectomy eradicate prostate infection by pushing antibiotics into the prostate. The new prostate surgery also use herbal medicine to dissolve blockage,abscess, calculus, lumps and cysts in the prostate and epididymis.

Causes of Prostate Infection

Prostatitis, bacterial or nonbacterial, is always caused by bacteria infection. The prostatic infection could be originated from internal or external. For external cause of prostate infection, the source of bacteria is from sexual contacts, public places such as washroom. Urinary tract infection is the first sign of infection, then it develops into prostatitis. For internal cause of prostate infection, the source of bacteria is from within the body. Cold, diseases or external bacteria infection lower body immunity, create conditions for certain bacteria to overgrow and cause various prostate symptoms and pain.

Problems with Prostate Infection

Our surgery center has extensive clinical experience treating various prostate problems. Prostate infection is one of them. However, urologists and doctors face a series of problems and embarrassment when treating prostate infection.


Ineffective Surgery for Prostate Infection

The common treatment for prostate infection by your urologist and doctor is oral antibiotics. In fact, it is the only treatment available. Some cases are lucky if treated early, with the right type of antibiotics, proper dosage and duration. In many cases, the prostate infection is mixed with a few strains of bacteria, virus or Ureaplasma, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, and it is unlikely that oral antibiotics can eradicate all of them.

Once the bacteria infection reaches the prostate, it becomes difficult to cure as the special structure of the prostate blocks antibiotics penetrating into it to form high inhibition concentration. There is always some bacteria survived after rounds of antibiotics treatment, as a result, relapses. The consequence is that the bacteria becomes resistant to many antibiotics and it becomes incurable with traditional prostate surgery or treatment except our prostatectomy and TURP surgery.


Complicated Prostate Gland Structure

The special structure of prostate gland is a perfect place for bacteria to grow. It blocks everything from entering when there is an infection, including antibiotics. The blockage and swelling also reduce blood supply to the prostate. Also, the prostate gland accumulates deposit and waste and they are not easy to flush out when the prostate is infected. The formation of these waste and deposit produces blockage, enlargement and swelling of the prostate.

Prostate Blockage

Although most urologists and doctors believe that infection is the cause of prostatitis, they don't have any clue about the blockage and obstruction in the prostate. Also, they lack of any effective treatment for both problems, therefore, patients find little help from medical consultations. Infection and prostate blockage are two major obstacles in treating prostatitis. Prostate blockage has close link with the effectiveness of antibiotics treatment because:


1. The metabolic deposit, toxin and dead bacteria form the blockage that causes the swelling of the prostate and stops blood circulation from the body to the prostate. The blood capillaries are the only way for antibiotics and white blood cells to enter the prostate, therefore, it hinders the penetration of antibiotic medicine into the prostate and cause treatment failure and relapses.

2. The wide spread of blockage is a natural defense against our immune system because it provides an ideal condition for bacteria to hide and get protection against attack from our immunity and antibiotic medicine.

Lack of Specialized Treatment and Surgery

Since prostatitis is not life-threatening, medical science has conducted limited research on this stealthy disease over the past years. The most common treatment for prostatitis is oral antibiotics, and it is the only treatment available too. Once antibiotic treatment fails to cure in the first one or two months, it is almost sure that switching to other type of antibiotics or extending treatment duration is not of much use.

Ironically, some urologists blame non-infection causes as the possible source of prostate pain and symptoms, such as nerve problems or muscle problems. They may also suggest you a radical surgery to remove the prostate so as to get rid of those agonizing symptoms and pain.

Bad Clinical Procedures

Since most doctors or urologists have limited knowledge on prostatitis, they have made many mistakes in diagnosis, lab tests, prognosis and treatment.

1. Doctors often use urine as the specimen for lab tests which is not suitable for prostatitis. Since the infection is mainly in the prostate, epididymis, vas deferens and seminal vesicles, very few bacteria can travel to the urethra without getting killed by white blood cells. In addition, urine dilutes infected specimen and make it more difficult to get identified.

2. Very few doctors are willing to perform digital rectal exam to collect prostatic fluid for lab test. Most of them use urine or semen as specimen. The right type of specimen determines the accuracy of lab test.

3. It is a common practice that most hospitals or clinics use simple white blood cell count test to replace the expensive culture test for prostate testing. If there is presence of abnormal number of white blood cells in urethra, doctors will prescribe broad spectrum antibiotics without knowing what kind of bacteria is causing the problems. This practice works only for some simple cases but is not effective for mixed infections, viral and fungal infections.

Prostatectomy for Prostate Infection

The prostatectomy conducted in our surgery center is not a radical surgery. It is a very skillful prostate surgery incorporating injection of antibiotics and herbal medicine to infected organs, such as swollen prostate, enlarged epididymis, enlarged vas deferens and swollen seminal vesicles.

Features of Prostatectomy

1. The aim of the surgery is to facilitate penetration of antibiotics into the prostate. A special passage is designed near the perineum to allow a needle penetrating into the prostate safely and efficiently. The passage does not pose any risk to other vital organs or pass through colon and rectum, so it won't cause secondary infection.

2. An extra long and flexible needle is used for prostatectomy. The needle reaches the prostate precisely under the savvy maneuver of the surgeon.

3. The specific kind of medicine used is purely based on laboratory reports. If the tests find that you have Chlamydia, a Chlamydia sensitive antibiotics is selected for prostatectomy. If you have viral infection, we will switch to viral treatment. If you have fungal infection, the doctor will select fungal medicine for prostate surgery.

4. Lastly, herbal medicine is administered to dissolve blockage and obstruction typically found in chronic prostatitis. Herbal medicine is a special component of prostatectomy because there is no comparative prostate surgery or treatment in western countries.

5. The theory is blockage in prostatitis is unknown to western medical science, so it is meaningless if you consult with your doctor about our prostatectomy or TURP surgery. Since western surgery focuses only on prostate infection, blockage issue is either neglected or unknown by most doctors. Even though some doctors observe the sign of obstruction in swollen prostate, there is little they can do to cure or alleviate prostate symptoms.

6. Blockage will develop into calculus after some years of prostate infection. There may be other forms such as cyst, fibrosis, abscess, lumps, etc. There is no effective treatment or surgery to remove these abnormal symptoms. Prostatectomy with herbal medicine is extremely effective in dissolving these hard structures in the prostate.

Needles for Prostatectomy

Improper prostatectomy injection will create lumps in the prostate permanently and we have seen many cases like this, particularly patients from United States and Italy. Regular needle is not suitable for this kind of delicate prostatectomy injection. If you are planning to receive such prostate surgery, please make sure the doctor use a very thin needle.

Prostatectomy for STD Infection

As prostatitis is often caused by infection, the primary goal of prostatectomy is to eradicate infection completely in all genital organs, including the prostate, epididymis, vas deferens and seminal vesicles. Before prostate surgery, a comprehensive lab test is carried out on a list of possible pathogens, including common bacteria, Chlamydia, Ureaplasma, Mycoplasma and candida/fungi. Then, corresponding medicine is administered in prostatectomy.

Prostatectomy for Both Prostate Infection and Blockage

The major problem of prostatitis is incomplete eradication of prostate infection and results in flare up. Obstruction of blocked prostate is the main cause of flare up. Administration of mere antibiotics in the surgery can only work on the infection part of the problem, but it can not solve the obstruction problem which hinders thorough penetration of antibiotics in prostatectomy. Therefore, herbal medicine must be administered during surgery to dissolve calculus, lumps and obstruction. The herbal medicine is administered through prostate surgery.

Procedure of Prostatectomy

Medicine for Prostate Surgery

Medicine solution for prostatectomy consists of two important components, antibiotics and herbal medicine. First, herbal medicine and antibiotics are mixed in a solution. Specific antibiotics is selected depending on kind of pathogen found.

Prostate Surgery Procedure

It is advised to empty the bladder and rectum before arriving at the surgery center. When surgery session begins, you will stand on your knee and bend over a table. The doctor inserts a gloved finger to check the condition of the swollen prostate and ask your pain sensation when he exerts pressure on different spots of the prostate. Then the finger locates the spot where he is going to treat. A long and thin needle is injected to near-anus spot, then the gloved finger guides the needle to the desired spot. The doctor then presses the plunger and force the medicine into infected areas.

After all medicine is inside the prostate, the doctor withdraws the needle while the other gloved finger massage mildly on the prostate for better penetration. If it is the first day prostate surgery, you will have more obvious pain as infected tissue reacts with medicine. The pain after surgery will get better after a rest or walk.

After Prostatectomy

Minimally Invasive Surgery

There are a lot of misconception that our prostatectomy is a surgery procedure. In fact, it is not. It is a non-invasive surgery with minimal damage to the prostate and the body. Prostatectomy injection does not cause any side effects. Antibiotics and herbal medicine do most of the task inside the prostate naturally without damaging the liver or kidney.

No Risk Prostatectomy

Since we use extreme thin needle for the prostate surgery, damage to the prostate is minimal. The passage of injection is not close to any vital organ and poses very low risk. Previous clinical experience shows that this type of local prostatectomy is extremely safe. In fact, many have benefited from herbal medicine and have better appetite.

Prostate Bacteria Infection

Although there are numerous pathogens that can cause prostate infection and finally lead to prostatitis, it can be classified into three major groups, namely bacteria, virus and candida. Bacteria group can be subdivided into common bacteria, Chlamydia, Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma. These pathogens are also the most stealthy and stubborn. Many cases of stubborn chronic prostatitis are linked to these pathogens because they often resist well to antibiotics treatment. Some common bacteria are Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, Corynebacteria, Enterococcus, Trichomonas, etc.

Prostate Viral Infection

Some mixed prostate infection cases are related to viruses. Although viral infection is not popular, it does cause symptoms and pain with other bacterial infections. These viruses are Cytomegalo virus (CMV), Herpes Simplex Virus 2 (HSV 2) and Coxsackie Virus (CVB).

Prostate Fungal Infection

Weak immune system in swollen prostate will cause imbalance of bacteria growth. Opportunistic pathogens, such as candida/fungi, will grow exponentially and cause irritating symptoms and pain. However, candida infection is less threatening than bacterial infection and is easier to treat with prostatectomy and TURP surgery.
