Webinar: Treatment for enlarged prostate

1 July at 6pm

Discover our range of minimally invasive and robotic-assisted treatments for enlarged prostate with Mr Steve Garnett, Consultant Urological Surgeon.

What is Aquablation® treatment?

Aquablation® treatment is a minimally invasive robotic assisted procedure that uses high-velocity water jets to remove excess prostate tissue, relieving the pressure on the urethra and improving urine flow. It's also known as AQUABEAM® robotic system, transurethral waterjet ablation and waterjet ablation therapy for endoscopic resection of prostate tissue.

This treatment is performed under general anaesthesia and requires no incisions or cuts. The advanced heat-free AQUABEAM® robotic assisted system enables the surgeon to carefully remove excess tissue with greater precision and fewer complications than traditional prostate treatments.

I have a question about Aquablation® treatment

What is prostate enlargement?

Prostate enlargement, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is common among men over 50. It occurs when the prostate gland, located just below the bladder, enlarges and presses against the urethra, causing urinary symptoms such as frequent urination, difficulty urinating, and weak urine flow.

What do I do if I have enlarged prostate symptoms?

If you are experiencing urinary symptoms due to an enlarged prostate, seeking medical attention from your GP is important. After a full assessment, your GP may refer you to a urologist.

If you're a self-pay patient interested in this procedure then please contact us directly via our online booking form or call 01580 363158.

What happens during the Aquablation® procedure?

During the procedure, a robotic system is used to precisely target and remove the excess prostate tissue using high-velocity water jets. Using robotics and ultrasound your prostate can be surgically mapped and the treatment adjusted to your individual anatomy. The system has an integrated camera and probe which your surgeon inserts into your urethra and bladder.

The process takes about an hour to complete, and patients will typically need to stay one to two nights post-operation before returning home.

What are the benefits of Aquablation® treatment?

Aquablation® treatment offers several benefits over traditional surgical procedures for BPH, including:

  • Low risk of sexual side effects: Unlike traditional surgical procedures, Aquablation® treatment does not usually affect sexual function
  • Reduced recovery time and post procedure discomfort, sometimes seen with more traditional procedures
  • Minimally invasive: No incisions or cuts are required, reducing the risk of complications, and shortening recovery time
  • Precise: The robotic system allows for the precise removal of prostate tissue, minimising the risk of damage to surrounding tissues
  • Effective: Aquablation® treatment supports rapid and significant improvement in urinary symptoms

What are the risks and side effects of Aquablation® treatment?

As with any medical procedure, there are risks and potential side effects associated with Aquablation® treatment. These may include: 

  • Urinary tract infection
  • Temporary difficulty urinating
  • Blood in urine
  • Incomplete emptying of the bladder 

However, these side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own within a few weeks after the procedure.

Is Aquablation® treatment right for me?

Robotic-assisted Aquablation® treatment may be suitable for men with moderate to severe urinary symptoms due to an enlarged prostate. Your Consultant will perform a full assessment to determine whether this treatment is right for you.
