Aquablation therapy is a different type of treatment for BPH. It’s an advanced, minimally invasive treatment that uses the power of water delivered with robotic precision to provide long-lasting BPH relief without compromise.
It’s designed to treat the whole man, not just his prostate—from his constant frustration with BPH to his dreams, relationships, dignity, and virility.
What is Aquablation?
Aquablation therapy is a safe and effective treatment for patients suffering from lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to BPH. It can be performed on prostates of any size and shape. Aquablation therapy is a resective procedure, meaning that the prostate tissue causing symptoms is removed. No incision is made, as the prostate is reached through the urethra.
Aquablation therapy is a one-of-a-kind robotic procedure. It is the only procedure that uses a heat-free waterjet controlled by robotic technology to remove prostate tissue. The treatment is performed in a hospital and is done under anesthesia. Aquablation typically takes less than an hour.
In addition, it is the only procedure that combines a camera (called a cystoscope) with ultrasound imaging, giving the surgeon the ability to see the entire prostate in real time. As a result, Aquablation therapy is precise, consistent, and predictable, and provides long-term relief no matter how large your prostate is.
In clinical studies, men who had Aquablation therapy had a very low rate of irreversible complications—incontinence, ejaculatory dysfunction, erectile dysfunction.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
