Bladder Tumor Treatment with Thulium Laser

In addition to prostate surgery, treatments of urinary system (kidney, ureter and bladder) tumors can also be performed with Thulium laser. Suspicious lesions (tumoral areas) in the bladder can be removed as a whole with this laser, which has been developed with the latest technology and has an effect of only 0.2 mm on the tissue.

Bladder Tumor Treatment with Thulium Laser

With the classical method, the bladder is entered endoscopically and treated with tumoral region resection (TUR-M) surgery. This surgery is based on the principle of burning the tissues with electrical energy and removing them.

However, the masses in the bladder can be treated by removing them as a whole with the Thulium laser. Pathological evaluation of masses removed as a whole without a burning defect is also healthier. In addition, the risk of tumoral areas spreading into the bladder during surgery is also reduced.
