HoLEP

Overview

Holmium laser enucleation of prostate (HoLEP) is a minimally invasive procedure developed in the 1990s to remove large amounts of prostate tissue in men with obstructive symptoms from benign prostate enlargement. The procedure is done in the operating room under general anesthesia using a scope and no incisions are made on the skin.
