SoracteLite for BPH
SoracteLite is an innovative and micro- invasive treatment for BPH. It is a non- surgical procedure which, by exploiting laser energy, obtains a significant reduction in the volume of the prostate consequently freeing up the urethral channel from the compressive processes that obstruct normal urinary flow. This ensures a gradual resolution of symptoms and progressive improvement in the quality of life for the patient, who will urinate less frequently with a more powerful flow, while the number of night- time urinations is reduced or eliminated, and the risk of urinary tract infections decreases.
