How it Works
This surgery removes the inside of the prostate. It is similar to a HoLEP but requires cutting of the skin. For men with very large prostates, this is a good option to remove a larger portion of the prostate.
It is done with the help of robotic technology to minimize the incisions and recovery. Although it is similar, this is not the same surgery that is done for prostate cancer.
This procedure requires a general anesthesia, and most men require an overnight hospital stay.
