What is Holmium Laser Prostate Surgery?
Holmium laser prostate surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a laser to remove the prostate tissue that is blocking urine flow through the prostate. Another instrument is then used to cut the tissue into smaller fragments that can later be sent to a laboratory for further analysis. The doctor then places a catheter for one or two days to drain the urine from the bladder.
This procedure is similar to open prostate surgery except that it requires no incisions.
Holmium laser prostate surgery is a good treatment option for men suffering from severe enlargement of prostate. It provides a permanent solution for the condition.
