What Is Aquablation Therapy?
How Does Aquablation Therapy Work?
Creating a Surgical Map
Every prostate is unique in size and shape. Aquablation therapy enables our surgeons to customize your procedure to your specific anatomy.
Removing the Prostate Tissue
Once our surgeons have created a surgical map, a robotically-controlled, heat-free waterjet removes the prostate tissue that was outlined on the map. This robotic technology minimizes human error in removing prostate tissue and ensures the prostate tissue is removed precisely, consistently, and predictably.
What Are The Side Effects of Aquablation Therapy?
Is Aquablation Therapy Right for You?
Low Rates of Irreversible Complications
- It is the only procedure that allows surgeons to view the entire prostate so they can create a map that avoids the parts of the prostate that cause irreversible complications.
- It is the only procedure that uses a heat-free waterjet to remove prostate tissue. Technologies that use heat to remove prostate tissue may damage the parts of the prostate that control erectile function and ejaculatory function. It should be noted that some surgeons may choose to use a minimal amount of cautery following an Aquablation procedure if it is required to control bleeding.
Confidence in Procedure
Aquablation therapy removes prostate tissue with a robotically-controlled waterjet. This robotic technology minimizes human error and ensures the prostate tissue is removed precisely, consistently, and predictably.
