Laser Treatment of the Prostate (Holep) is the complete removal of the inner tissue of the prostate, with the exception of the capsule, in benign prostate enlargements.

How is Laser Treatment of the Prostate (Holep) Performed?

Laser treatment (holep) of the prostate is performed under general or spinal anesthesia, in the operating room environment. It is advanced through the urinary canal to the prostate with special cameras.

With the laser, the entire inner prostate tissue is separated so that the prostate capsule remains. Prostate tissues are disintegrated in the bladder with a device called a morcellator and taken out.

All stages of the procedure are completed endoscopically. There is no incision. It is the gold standard practice in prostate surgeries as it is safer, less risk of bleeding and the amount of tissue removed is higher than other closed prostate surgeries.

Who Can Have Prostate Laser Treatment (Holep)?
