Regarding prostate lasers, there are continuous advances. Since the first green 80w laser, to the Cyber ​​Tulio or the XPS green laser , both of 180w, it has been just 10 years and the differences are considerable.

The prostatic laser technique has evolved to the point that nowadays prostates of previously unthinkable sizes can be operated. Especially thanks to contributions as important as the fiber of frontal shot that can be used in Cyber ​​Tulio laser, which allows us to perform two different techniques to the classical photovaporization of minor lasers, such as vaporesection and enucleation.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

These types of lasers are for treating Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia , which is an enlarged prostate gland very common in men from 50-60 years. The advantages of this type of prostatic laser compared to traditional techniques are many since this surgery has no bleeding, which makes it a minimally aggressive and invasive surgery. And now you can treat any type of patient and almost any size of prostate .

 

Recovery after prostatic laser

In addition, the recovery is very fast , does not leave sequels of incontinence or impotence. In general, it is that the patient goes home in 24 hours without a catheter and that he recovers his normal activity in 3 or 4 days. With saving a little rest those days is enough.
