Georgia Urology Surgeon Treats Five Enlarged Prostate Patients in Single Day with Aquablation Procedure
Patients struggling with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, can find relief by trusting the experts at Georgia Urology, the largest urology practice in the Southeast. On June 8 at Northside Hospital Forsyth, the practice marked its proficiency with the groundbreaking Aquablation robotic procedure as Dr. Brent Sharpe treated five BPH patients. This ranks as the second most Aquablation cases in one day in the United States.
Those looking for safe, minimally invasive, and effective BPH treatment often choose Aquablation therapy. The surgeon uses a heat-free waterjet controlled by robotic technology to remove prostate tissue. Aquablation therapy is precise, consistent, and reproducible, and it is the first treatment to provide predictable outcomes for patients, no matter the size of the prostate. Studies have shown it to be more efficient and superior in safety to a standard operation.
Dr Sharpe is highly experienced with Aquablation, and he was one of the first surgeons in Georgia to perform the procedure. “Even though there are a wide variety of treatment options, every option requires patients to make a tradeoff between symptom relief and side effects,” says Dr. Sharpe. “Aquablation therapy is an exciting new option for patients as it aims to eliminate this tradeoff.”
Patients interested in learning more about Aquablation therapy can consult with Dr. Sharpe or another one of Georgia Urology’s physician specialists. With more than 30 locations throughout metro Atlanta, Georgia Urology offers convenient access to Aquablation and other state-of-the-art treatments.
