Bellvitge University Hospital was one of the first few hospitals in catalonia to use prostatic vaporization with advanced laser. This technique is more sophisticated than the previous ones and it enables larger-size benign prostatic hypertrophies to be treated on an outpatient basis. Prostatic vaporization with laser is a minimally invasive technique that is used on those patients who are candidates, in order to avoid open or transurethral surgery.

Currently, 50% of our hospital’s patients with benign prostatic pathology are treated with this type of intervention. This rate has increased because this device allows us to treat prostates of a larger size.
