Prostate Laser Surgery (HoLEP)

Representative diagram of how prostate laser surgery is carried out.

What does Prostate Laser Surgery (HoLEP) consist of?

It is a surgery to treat prostate inflammation (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), where no incision is made. Endoscopic instruments and a laser fiber are introduced through the urethra (the opening through which urine exits). The prostate is identified, as well as the boundaries to be respected, allowing the patient to control their urination without problems after the surgery. After removing the prostate (Enucleation), it is then fragmented (Morcellation) in order to extract it without difficulties, and the extracted tissue is sent for pathological analysis.”

The duration of the procedure is approximately 1.5-2 hours and is performed using regional anesthesia, specifically spinal anesthesia.
