Holmium for BPH
Holmium Laser treatment is a minimally invasive alternative to TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate). It uses laser energy to relieve enlarged prostate symptoms and is designed to reduce traditional complications associated with TURP. With holmium laser therapy, patients experience minimal pain after theoperation and spend less time in the hospital than with TURP. They are also able to resume normal activities within a week. There are few to no sexual side effects with holmium laser therapy, and, unlike TURP, it can be performed on patients taking anticoagulant medications like Coumadin® (warfarin sodium).
