Aquablation now available at St. Joseph Hospital

February 23, 2022

Dr. Matthew Greenberger is the first urologist at St. Joseph Hospital to perform this new treatment.

The first Aquablation therapy procedure, a new type of surgical treatment for patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), recently was performed at St. Joseph Hospital by urologist Dr. Matthew Greenberger. Aquablation therapy uses the power of water delivered with robotic precision to provide long-lasting BPH relief. 

This hospital-based robotic procedure removes prostate tissue using a heat-free water jet controlled by robotic technology. Aquablation therapy is a resective procedure, which means that the prostate tissue causing symptoms is surgically removed. No incision is made in the abdomen, as the prostate is reached through the urethra. Aquablation therapy is done under anesthesia. 

This new technology was purchased utilizing generous donations to the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation.
