Gentle treatment of BPH

Gentle treatment of BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia) with NanoKnife

All men of advanced age have BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). It can produce symptoms such as restricted urine flow, incomplete emptying of the bladder, frequent urge to urinate at night, infection of the draining urinary tract, etc. If these symptoms do not respond to medication, the enlarged portions of the prostate must be reduced. We offer a new, gentle treatment method with the help of NanoKnife IRE (Irreversible Electroporation) technology.

Currently, surgical treatment of BPH consists of open or transurethral (= through the urethra) resection (TURP = transurethral resection of the prostate). As an alternative, a transurethral laser treatment can be conducted in which the enlarged portions of the prostate can be burned away from inside the urethra.

Both of these methods have the disadvantage that they destroy the urethra inside the prostate and can result in secondary symptoms similar to chronic prostate inflammation. Another less common result of TURP or laser treatment is retrograde ejaculation or loss of bladder control.

At the Vitus Prostate Center, we have developed a new treatment for BPH that does not produce side effects. With NanoKnife, benign prostatic hyperplasia can be treated without damage to relevant structures. The intraprostatic urethra remains unaffected, as does the colliculus seminalis. This reduces the risk of ejaculation dysfunction to a very low level. BPH treatment using NanoKnife also precludes injury to the bladder sphincter.

The treatment of BPH with the cell-selective method of IRE is possible due to the fact that BPH is a cellular hyperplasia.

If you have symptoms of BPH, ask about the advantages of treatment with NanoKnife. We would be happy to advise you.
