Holmium laser prostate surgery is a minimally invasive treatment for an enlarged prostate. Also known as holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), the procedure uses a laser to remove prostate tissue that is blocking urine flow through the urinary pathway or urethra. The prostate tissue is then cut into into easily removable fragments and sent for examination.

HoLEP is similar to open prostate surgery but requires no incisions. It can be an option for men with a very enlarged prostate.

HoLEP removes the entire portion of the prostate that can block urine flow. The treatment provides a lasting solution for men with an enlarged prostate, a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). HoLEP also preserves removed tissue so that it can be examined in the laboratory for other conditions, including prostate cancer.

As with other types of prostate laser surgery, HoLEP can offer faster recovery and symptom relief compared with traditional prostate surgery.

Dr. Roberts is accepting new patients at our Stone Springs, Lansdowne and Cornwall offices. Call today for a consultation to learn more about this minimally invasive treatment option for an large prostate.
