What is HOLEP

Holmium Laser Enucleation of Prostate is a procedure for complete removal of prostate adenoma by endoscopically enucleating the whole prostate adenoma from its capsule like shelling out an orange from its peel and thus providing maximum symptomatic releif and quicker recovery.

It uses Holmium laser which cuts precisely, controls all bleeders and does not cause damage to surrounding normal tissue It is different from standard TURP as in TURP the adenoma is cut into small chips from inside out to create urine passage for passing urine.

More than 1500 cases


ADVANTAGES OF LASER PROSTATECTOMY ?

Any size of the Prostate can be treated  |  Negligible Bleeding  |  Short hospital stay
No Hemodynamic disturbances  |  No incidence of TUR Syndrome  |  No complications specially attributable to laser  |  Durable long term results  |  Negligible TRUS Volumes & Low PSA
HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of Prostate) is very safe & effective technique of Prostate removal.

HOLEP

Endoscopic enucleation more tissue removed excellent post op flow rate sustained relief over time
Any size prostate less reoperation rate
Less blood loss / Less catheter time
24 hours stay
Less fluid absorption
Safe in patients on anticogulants, cardic pacemaker, CKD/ COPD

TURP

Endoscopic resection
Poor for large prostate
Fluid absorption may cause problems
    Bleeding complication
