After PlasmaButton Vaporization – Quick Recovery
In contrast to other standard energy treatments that operate with high temperature, the PlasmaButton vaporization uses low temperature plasma energy to safely remove BPH tissue while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Personal risks of side effects following surgery are based on individual results; however, the Button vaporization method may minimize the side effects resulting in:
  • Short procedure time
  • Short catheterization time following the procedure
  • Brief post-operative hospital stay
  • Minimal post-operative discomfort
  • Quick return to normal activities
Important Risks to Consider
Every medical treatment may have side effects. The same is true for the PlasmaButton Therapy. The potential side effects are:
  • Blood in the urine 
  • Cramping in the bladder or an urgent need to urinate
  • Frequent urination, burning sensation 
You should contact your doctor immediately if:
  • You see large amounts of blood in your urine 
  • You have a temperature in excess of 101° F 
  • You experience chills or shaking 
The risk for serious complications depends on your medical condition and age, as well as on the experience of the surgeon and anesthesiologist. Ask your doctor what you should expect after surgery, as well as the risks that may occur with surgery.

Alternative non-surgical treatments for BPH:
  • Watchful waiting 
  • Drug therapy 
  • Microwave or heat therapies
