Aquablation Therapy Q & A
What is Aquablation therapy?
Aquablation therapy is a treatment to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), an enlarged prostate. The treatment requires no incisions and uses water jet pressure to remove excess tissue from the prostate gland to relieve symptoms of BPH.
Urologic Surgeons of Arizona offers Aquablation therapy for adult men who can’t find relief from BPH symptoms with other treatments. Our providers have extensive experience using image-guided technology to remove prostate tissue without damaging surrounding tissue.
When should I consider Aquablation therapy?
BPH becomes more common with age. As your prostate enlarges, it causes narrowing in the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of your body. Excess prostate tissue can block the flow of urine and make urination difficult or painful.
You may be a candidate for Aquablation therapy if you have persistent symptoms of BPH that aren’t treatable with medications. Frequent urge to urinate during the day or night is a common symptom of BPH. Other BPH symptoms can include:
- Sudden urges to urinate
- Difficulties starting a urine stream
- Weak urine stream
- Interrupted urine stream
Urological Surgeons of Arizona provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluations to assess your prostate and determine if you’re a candidate for Aquablation therapy.
What are the benefits of Aquablation therapy?
Aquablation therapy offers many benefits over traditional surgery. No incisions are required for treatment, so you can expect to recover quickly.
During treatment, our providers insert a cystoscope into your urethra and use the robotic-controlled water jet technology to remove excess prostate tissue with a high level of precision. He also uses real-time ultrasound imaging to view your prostate throughout treatment to ensure the best outcome.
Aquablation therapy is an effective treatment option regardless of the size of your prostate. Because our providers can always see your prostate, they can successfully remove sufficient tissue to prevent further urination difficulties.
After treatment, you initially have a catheter to eliminate urine from your body. Before you can go home to finish your recovery, our providers remove the catheter and ensures you can urinate on your own. You may have mild burning with urination for a few weeks as your body heals.
