What is Cooled ThermoTherapy?
Cooled ThermoTherapy is a minimally-invasive non-surgical procedure for the treatment of an enlarged prostate; also known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). The urologist, assisted by a specially trained technologist, performs the treatment using a specially designed catheter that directs heat deep into the prostate to safely destroy the enlarged tissue thus reducing the pressure being placed on the urethra. During treatment, cool water is circulated through a catheter, drawing heat way from the delicate surface of the urethra, protecting it from damage and minimizing patient discomfort.
