Why Choose Enucleation?
Enucleation is an advanced surgical technique that provides long term durability that comes from the complete removal of the prostate tissue.3
Benefits of SOLTIVE™ Laser Enucleation1
Reduced bleeding with a chance of faster recovery and discharge2
Lower risk of thermal injury due to SOLTIVE SuperPulsed laser's low power compared to other lasers1
Enables surgeon to simultaneously treat urinary stones if needed, saving time1,2
Studies have shown enucleation procedures typically result in extremely low rates of retreatment and erectile dysfunction as well as high quality of life feedback even several years after the procedure.2
Enucleation is performed when the physician completely frees the benign tumor of the gland from the prostate capsule so that no capsular attachments remain. A separate instrument is then used to cut the prostate tissue into easily removable fragments.3
Enucleation can be performed effectively with Plasma Therapy or SOLTIVE SuperPulsed Laser Therapy.
Speak with your doctor to see if Enucleation is right for you.
