Aquablation Therapy for BPH

Aquablation Therapy for BPH Can Relieve Symptoms

If you have benign prostate hyperplasia, or BPH, you may have tried other treatments, or you might be learning about treatments that can help you deal with the symptoms. Our Houston urologists offer a minimally invasive procedure that provides you with long-term symptom relief, with a very low risk of complications or side effects. Aquablation therapy for BPH helps men find relief from symptoms such as the frequent need to urinate, a weak urine stream or one that starts and stops, or the inability to fully empty your bladder. 

This minimally invasive therapy for benign prostate hyperplasia offers several benefits

Aquablation® therapy is beneficial for many men who have BPH. 

  • No incision 
  • No heat 
  • Appropriate for men with any size prostate 
  • Low rate of complications and side effects, including ejaculatory or erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence 

Thanks to precision mapping, our Houston urologists can precisely remove only the necessary excess prostate tissue, avoiding areas of the prostate and other anatomical features whose removal could cause complications, such as retrograde ejaculation. 

How does Aquablation therapy for BPH work?

This therapy is the only treatment that employs robotic-controlled technology to apply a heat-free waterjet to remove prostate tissue. Our Houston urologists create a surgical map of the prostate, which allows them to precisely remove the prostate tissue. During Aquablation therapy for BPH, the surgeon can see the entire prostate, thanks to a cystoscope, or thin camera, combined with ultrasound imaging. Predictable and consistent, this minimally invasive procedure gets you back to your life with very few or no irreversible complications. 

What to expect during the procedure and recovery

Our surgeons perform Aquablation therapy for BPH in a hospital, and you will be under general anesthesia. Generally, they complete the procedure in less than an hour, and you stay in the hospital overnight. While you will have a catheter in place when you wake up, you usually can leave the hospital without one. The catheter helps you urinate while your urethra heals.   

You may experience mild burning when you urinate for a couple of weeks after the procedure. Our urologists can prescribe mild pain medication, and they will advise you when it is safe to resume your normal activities.
