Aquablation is performed under general anesthesia. When your provider performs Aquablation, they use a combination of real-time imaging, robotic technology, and a heat-free waterjet to remove excess tissue from your prostate gland.
The surgical robot is preprogrammed with your customized treatment to precisely target your prostate tissue with intense pulses of water. The robot removes the excess tissue. Aquablation typically takes less than an hour.
You might need to stay in the hospital overnight after your Aquablation procedure. You might have some burning during urination and some soreness in your rectum for a few days, but this is tolerable with mild pain medication. You’ll probably be able to resume normal activities within a week of your procedure.
