Holmium Laser Technology
Holmium Laser treatment with the High Power Lumenis Holmium Laser machine has emerged as the new “GOLD STANDARD” in the India for treating Enlarged Prostate (BPH) as well as Stones in the Kidney, Bladder, Ureter and Urethra (Urinary Passage)
It is the latest technology used in the west over last 5 years with excellent results and now is most widely used in India. In Bangalore Sree lakshmi hospital is one of the pioneers to use this technology with very good outcome
For Enlarge Prostate
Holmium Laser Enucleation of Prostate (HoLEP) is also known as Holmium Laser Prostatectomy. HoLEP is aimed to remove the central part of prostate gland which enlarges due to ageing and causes pressure on urethra (urine passage)
The High Power Holmium Laser separates the central part of prostate from the surrounding fibrous covering (capsule) and this procedure is nearly bloodless as the laser beam when cuts the gland also seals the blood vessels. The separated part of the prostate is then pushed into urinary bladder and is cut by a special machine (Morcellator) into smaller pieces and then sucked out of the body. The smaller pieces of the prostate are sent for biopsy to detect prostate cancer.
In this procedure, the world’s thinnest 4.5 Fr ureteroscope is passed under anesthesia per urethra into bladder and ureter up to the stone. Small stones are pulled out with various instruments and bigger stones are fragmented with high power Lumenis Powersuite 100w Holmium laser machine into smaller pieces which subsequently pass naturally
For Kidney stone
PCNL is a keyhole surgery for removal of kidney stones in which instruments with small diameter are used for smaller kidney punctures. Laser, pneumatic and ultrasound devices are used in the process to fragment stone and there is very less bleeding in the process. With High Power Holmium laser machine, even hard and large are fragmented quickly with less bleeding.
The PCNL treatment is highly advantageous as it has a history of resulting into complete clearance in over 95% cases and the patient can be home in as little as 48 hours.
- Reduce hospital stay
- Complete clearance in over 90% cases in single session
- With Holmium Laser, even large and hard stone is fragmented quickly with higher precision and less bleeding
- Faster recovery
- Painless treatment
- Strong clinical evidence
