An Umuahia-based medical facility, ELEOS Specialist Hospital has become the first hospital in Nigeria to commence Bipolar Enucleation of the prostate.
This new technological advancement allows the removal of prostates completely irrespective of the size without opening up the patient’s body.
Older methods of achieving the same thing according to Dr Paul E Ngwu a Consultant Urologist and Laparoscopic Surgeon, include Holmium and Thulium Laser enucleation.
He said that, unlike the conventional endoscopic methods for removing the prostate, even the biggest prostates will not need an open Surgery with this method.
He added that this method also offers the advantage of a very short hospital stay as patients go home a day or two after the procedure and return to work much earlier.
The procedure he stated is also very safe and more affordable.
