Emory Urology first in state to offer HoLEP
HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate) is a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive procedure for prostate enlargement causing bothersome urinary symptoms. "The innovative HoLEP procedure is an ideal choice for patients whose prostates are too large for standard transurethral resection of the prostate, and avoids the invasiveness of open or robotic transabdominal surgeries," says Brendan Browne, MD. The procedure uses a laser and requires no incisions.
