PlasmaButton™ vaporization is a minimally invasive surgical option for treating BPH and removing prostate tissue that blocks the flow of urine. Unlike the more traditional TURP procedure, PlasmaButton Vaporization removes prostate tissue more gently using low-temperature plasma energy.
How PlasmaButton Vaporization Works
PlasmaButton vaporization gently vaporizes the prostate tissue with a small button-shaped electrode.
Using low-voltage energy, a plasma field coats the “button” and prostate tissue in contact with this plasma field is vaporized.
The surgeon uses a unique hovering technique so there is virtually no direct contact needed between the button and tissue.
This advanced button not only vaporizes the enlarged tissue, but it also coagulates the remaining healthy tissue, leaving a smooth surface.
