Columbia Asia Referral Hospital, Yeshwanthpur, Successfully Conducts HOLEP to Treat a 72-Year-old With Urology Disorder

BANGALORE, February 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Columbia Asia Referral Hospital, Yeshwanthpur (CARHY) successfully conducted a Urology surgery through an advanced laser technology - HOLEP. The team of doctors led by Dr Manohar,  Consultant Urologist at CARHY removed a large prostate gland weighing 350 gms, hitherto unheard of in medical history.

"HOLEP by 100 Watt Holmuim Laser technique that was used to treat the 72-year-old is an advanced laser technology and is the latest treatment for all urological problems. The advantages of the HOLEP 100 watt laser technique are multiple. The usage of this technique lessens hospital stay for a patient, less blood loss and most importantly leaves no scar on the patient's body. This technique provides less complications compared to the traditional way," says Dr Manohar.

The 72-year-old man Sanaj Nambiar (name changed) from Calicut was in immense pain due to enlarged prostate for over a decade. He was going through severe difficulties including pain while urinating, difficulty in walking and imbalance.  While the normal size of the prostate gland is 15-20 gms, Nambiar was detected with 350 gm, which is unheard of in medical history.

The heavy prostrate made it difficult for Nambiar to carry out basic and normal activities of life. In addition, his kidneys were swollen due to obstruction by the grossly enlarged prostate. The family visited many hospitals and doctors in Kerala before deciding to get him treated at Bangalore. The abnormal size of the prostrate made many hospitals even in Bangalore apprehensive about conducting the critical surgery as the regular surgical process would cause bleeding and chances of its incomplete removal.

Finally, a family member recommended CARHY, which is known for its advanced technologies and expertise in the field of Urology.

His enlarged gland was removed in less than 2 hours of time without any blood loss. Nambiar was discharged from the hospital the next day. Today, he is leading a normal and active life without any complications.


Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate  is a laser technology to treat any kind of prostate enlargement, be it small to large. Normally, prostate enlargement is treated by conventional TURP, which has much more recurrence and bleeding during operation and excess bleeding when dealing with patients who are on blood thinning agents. HOLEP as a technology is very versatile in treating large prostate especially the ones that weigh more than 70 gms, wherein other technologies are met with complications.

Very few hospitals have such advanced technologies and the expertise to treat urological disorders. CARHY in Bangalore is one among the few leading centers in India and abroad.  Dr. Manohar, CARHY is the only surgeon in the whole of South India to have the skills and the necessary expertise to conduct surgeries through this latest technology. He has got experience to treat kidney stones, various cancers and prostate diseases through the latest LASER technologies.
