Aquablation Therapy Surgical Treatment for BPH (enlarged prostate)

Aquablation therapy is one of the newest surgical treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). At The University of Toledo Medical Center we are proud to be the first in the region to offer this advanced, minimally invasive treatment.

What is Aquablation Therapy?

Aquablation therapy is an advanced, minimally invasive treatment for BPH that uses imaging, robotics, and a heat-free waterjet to remove prostate tissue, supported by clinical studies that show it provides long-lasting relief with low rates of complications.

Who is a candidate for Aquablation Therapy?

Patients experiencing symptoms from BPH, including difficulty urinating, frequent urges to urinate – particularly at night – and an inability to fully empty the bladder, are candidates for Aquablation therapy.

How does Aquablation Therapy work?

Aquablation therapy combines a heat free water jet with robotic guidance and precise image-guided mapping that enables physicians to remove excess prostate tissue to relieve BPH symptoms with a much lower risk of damaging nearby tissue or key nerves involved in sexual performance.

The therapy is performed in a hospital and is done under anesthesia, with the surgeon accessing the prostate through the urethra. Most patients will spend one night in the hospital and will have fully recovered within a couple of weeks.

What are the benefits of Aquablation Therapy?

Aquablation therapy’s robotic technology combined with its high-definition imaging and surgical mapping helps to ensure that the prostate tissue is removed with precision. This technology allows the physician to only remove the excess prostate tissue needed to provide relief for BPH symptoms and avoid removing the parts of the prostate that can cause complications like retrograde ejaculations.

What are the side effects of Aquablation?

We know that the primary reason men are delaying surgery is because they are concerned about side effects. In fact, a recent survey shows that 85% of men are concerned that surgery will cause incontinence, and 4 out of 5 men are concerned that surgery will have a permanent impact on their sexual function.

In clinical studies, men who had Aquablation therapy had a very low rate of irreversible complications—incontinence, ejaculatory dysfunction, erectile dysfunction.

  • 0% impact on erectile function, orgasmic function, sexual desire, intercourse satisfaction or overall sexual satisfaction.
  • 90% of men with BPH preserve ejaculatory function with Aquablation therapy.
  • 99% men with BPH did not have incontinence after Aquablation therapy.
