Minimally Invasive Treatment for BPH
Aquablation therapy is a different type of treatment for BPH. It’s an advanced, minimally invasive treatment that uses the power of water delivered with robotic precision to provide best-in-class and long-lasting symptom relief and also low rates of irreversible complications regardless of how large the patient’s prostate is. Aquablation therapy is a resective procedure, meaning that the prostate tissue causing symptoms is removed. No incision is made, as the prostate is reached through the uretha.
What Happens during Aquablation Therapy Treatment?
With Aquablation therapy, there are two simple steps:
- Creating a surgical map: The surgeon uses a cystoscope & real-time ultrasound imaging to create a surgical map of the prostate. This enables the surgeon to see the entire prostate so they can create a surgical map of the areas of the prostate to remove and those to avoid.
- Removing the prostate tissue: With the surgical map in place, a robotically controlled, heat-free water jet removes the prostate tissue. Aquablation therapy offers predictable and reproducible outcomes, independent of prostate anatomy, prostate size, or surgeon experience.
The treatment is performed in the hospital and is done under spinal or general anesthesia. The procedure generally takes less than an hour and involves an overnight stay.
