Thulium Laser Treatment

Thulium fiber laser enucleation (ThuLEP) is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes the latest technology to treat men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate.

Using a high powered laser, the ThuLEP procedure is a treatment for the efficient removal of prostate tissue that is obstructing the flow of urine. Without any incisions, this procedure is ideal for men with large prostate size but equally as effective for smaller size prostates. 

Compared to traditional open prostate surgery, the benefits of ThuLEP include low risk of bleeding, decreased pain, reduced risk of complications and quick recovery. In fact, most ThuLEP surgeries are outpatient procedures.

As the only program in southeastern New England offering ThuLEP, the Minimally Invasive Urology Institute at The Miriam Hospital is at the forefront of benign prostatic hyperplasia treatment.
