For two years I have researched the many different treatments for BPH. I went to the Mayo Clinic to schedule a HoLEP (Holmium Laser Enucliation of the Prostate). I was told my prostate was a little small, and the HoLEP expert recommended a HoLAP (Holmium Laser Ablation of the Prostate) instead. As I understand it, in HoLAP a laser wire through a cystoscope is used to ablate all the prostate tissue. My HoLAP is scheduled for July. A few questions: is this essentially the same procedure as the green light laser, (though a different type of laser is used)? Has anyone had any experience with HoLAP or the Mayo Clinic for prostate treatment? Any knowledge of whether or not Medicare will cover this treatment? Thank you all for your response.
