Columbia Asia Referral Hospital, Yeshwanthpur (CARHY) successfully conducted a Urology surgery through an advanced laser technology - HOLEP. The team of doctors led by Dr Manohar, Consultant Urologist at CARHY removed a large prostate gland weighing 350 gms, hitherto unheard of in medical history.
"HOLEP by 100 Watt Holmuim Laser technique that was used to treat the 72-year-old is an advanced laser technology and is the latest treatment for all urological problems. The advantages of the HOLEP 100 watt laser technique are multiple. The usage of this technique lessens hospital stay for a patient, less blood loss and most importantly leaves no scar on the patient's body. This technique provides less complications compared to the traditional way," says Dr Manohar.
The 72-year-old man Sanaj Nambiar (name changed) from Calicut was in immense pain due to enlarged prostate for over a decade. He was going through severe difficulties including pain while urinating, difficulty in walking and imbalance. While the normal size of the prostate gland is 15-20 gms, Nambiar was detected with 350 gm, which is unheard of in medical history.
