New treatment in Island Urology, Aquablation Therapy.

Men who suffer from an enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) have a new robotic treatment option using the power of water.

Island Urology now offers Aquablation® therapy, an advanced, minimally invasive treatment that uses imaging, robotics and a heat-free water jet to provide long-lasting relief with low rates of complications.

With over 60,000 procedures performed worldwide and over six years of data collected, Aquablation is safe for any size or shape prostate.

This robotic procedure creates a surgical map to remove prostate tissue with a heat-free, high-velocity water jet to ensure the prostate tissue is removed precisely and consistently.

Island Urologists Dr. Mansel Kevwitch and Dr. David Rice are thrilled to bring this new technology to our region. “Aquablation is the latest robotic treatment for an enlarged prostate that offers a safe, more efficient and robust procedure. Side effects are minimized because tissue is removed with water jets rather than heat or electrical energy,” said Dr. Kevwitch.

Recovery time is typically two to three weeks following the procedure. Patients are choosing Aquablation therapy for BPH treatment because it offers significant symptom relief and low rates of irreversible complications related to sexual function.
