Aquablation Therapy

An advanced, minimally invasive treatment for BPH that uses imaging, robotics, and a heat-free waterjet to provide long-lasting relief with low rates of complications.

Aquablation therapy is an advanced, minimally invasive treatment that uses the power of water delivered with robotic precision to provide long-lasting BPH relief without compromise. It is a safe and effective treatment for patients suffering from lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to BPH. It can be performed on prostates of any size and shape.

BPH Canada is the first center in Canada to offer Aquablation to men of all provinces. We are also the first treatment center in the world to offer Aquablation as an outpatient ambulatory surgical center.

How Does it Work?

Aquablation therapy is a robotic procedure that removes prostate tissue using the power of water.
The treatment is performed in our clinic and is done under anesthesia. The procedure typically takes less than an hour.

Procedure

There are two key steps to the Aquablation therapy procedure.

Step 1: Creating a Surgical Map

Every prostate is unique in size and shape, so it is important for a surgeon to customize the surgery to the patient’s specific anatomy.

Aquablation therapy is the only procedure that combines a camera (called a cystoscope) with ultrasound imaging, giving the surgeon the ability to see the entire prostate in real time. All other surgical procedures use only a camera, limiting the surgeon’s ability to see. The addition of ultrasound imaging in Aquablation therapy allows the surgeon to map which parts of the prostate to remove and which parts to avoid.

The surgeon will work to map around the parts of the prostate that cause irreversible complications like erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction, and incontinence.

Step 2: Removing the Prostate Tissue

With the surgical plan in place, a robotically-controlled, heat-free waterjet removes the prostate tissue that has been mapped out. This robotic technology minimizes human error in removing prostate tissue, and ensures the prostate tissue is removed precisely, consistently, and predictably.

It should be noted that some surgeons may choose to use a minimal amount of cautery following an Aquablation procedure to control bleeding.

Duration

The Aquablation therapy procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete. Patients can be discharged on the same day or are sometimes required to complete an overnight stay for observation following the procedure.

Recovery

As with most BPH procedures, you will wake up with a catheter, which allows you to urinate while your urethra heals. You will be discharged once you are able to pee on your own and empty your bladder.

Once you are home, you may experience mild burning during urination for a couple of weeks. This can be managed with mild pain medication. Patients can resume their normal activities once approved by their doctor.

Risks

The most common side effects are mild and transient.
These may include mild pain or difficulty when urinating, discomfort in the pelvis, blood in the urine, inability to empty the bladder or a frequent and/or urgent need to urinate, and bladder or urinary tract infection. Other risks include ejaculatory dysfunction and a low risk of injury to the urethra or rectum where the devices gain access to the body for treatment.
