Treatment plan for BPH
Aquablation is a new option for treating BPH. It has all the advantages of removing excess prostate tissue, but with shorter operative times and fewer side effects. The prostate is monitored by ultrasound and via a cystoscope. Using computer/robotic control, a high pressure jet of water removes tissue following a precise treatment plan. This spares the bladder neck as well as the ducts that are needed for ejaculation. The risk of sexual problems is low after Aquablation, while maintaining the “gold standard” benefit of the more traditional prostate tissue removal procedures.
Much larger prostates can be treated with Aquablation than bipolar saline TURP. In the past prostate significantly over 100 cc needed open surgery. Aquablation allows for treatment of prostates much larger, so almost all men can now have a minimally invasive procedure to remove excess prostate tissue without needing open surgery.
