Minimally Invasive Prostate Therapy
We offer the most minimally invasive laser and microwave therapies for prostate therapy.
In some cases, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, can outgrow what medications can control. For patients who have worsening urinary difficulties or for those who cannot urinate at all, more aggressive management with surgery is usually required. Transurethral resection of the prostate, or TURP, has long been the standard surgical treatment for BPH. For many years, this invasive procedure was the only real option for patients who were not adequately managed on BPH medications. Recently, technological advances have introduced many new, less invasive options. These therapies use controlled heat, in the form of lasers and microwave energy, to treat the enlarged prostate. Lasers can disintegrate prostate tissue to immediately open the urinary channel for better flow. Likewise, microwaves cook the prostate gland and cause a portion of the gland to wither or melt away, reducing the block. At the Conrad Pearson Clinic, physicians offer the latest BPH technology, both laser and microwave.
