Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP)

The department of urology is one of the few centers in southern Germany offering the holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) as a standard therapy of the benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). With this procedure, one can also treat even large glands through the urethra (transurethral technique). This HoLEP-technology has allowed the physicians of the department to completely avoid conventional cutting operations through the abdominal wall and bladder used in the past (e.g., open adenoma enucleation). In addition, there are basically no restrictions regarding the size of hyperplasia.

The catheter inserted in the end of the operation can be removed within 2-3 days and the the patient can be discharged on the next day. In the department, between two and three HoLEP-procedures are carried out on average every day. There have been no cases where blood transfusion have had to be implemented. The effectiveness of this method has been confirmed by numerous international studies and is therefore recommended by national and European professional associations.
