    Mohamad Baker Berjaoui, MD
    University of Toronto
    This study presents the final analysis comparing clinical trial outcomes of Aquablation to TURP for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in small-to-moderate prostates (WATER study: NCT02505919) to those in large prostates (WATER II: NCT03123250) at five-year follow-up.
  • MP: 20-03: Aquablation Real-World Prostate Size Utilization and Reported Bleeding Events Across 5 Years
    Dean Elterman, MD, MSc, FRCSC
    University of Toronto
    While clinical studies in the past have evaluated Aquablation therapy’s application in glands between 30-150mL, this study sought to evaluate how the technology is used in the real-world setting. 31,944 procedures were evaluated from 2019-2023 in patients across Asia, Europe and North America.
  • MP20-05: Day Case Aquablation: First Published Experience Report in an Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC)
    Kevin C. Zorn, MD, FACS, FRCSC

About Aquablation Therapy
Aquablation therapy is the first and only ultrasound guided, robotic-assisted, heat-free waterjet for the treatment of BPH. The system’s real-time ultrasound imaging provides the surgeon with a multi-dimensional view of the prostate enabling personalized treatment planning tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy. The surgeon can specify which areas of the prostate to remove while preserving the anatomy that controls erectile function, ejaculatory function, and continence. Once the treatment plan is mapped by the surgeon, the predictable robotic-assisted execution enables prostate tissue to be removed in a precise, targeted, and controlled fashion.

About PROCEPT BioRobotics Corporation
PROCEPT BioRobotics is a surgical robotics company focused on advancing patient care by developing transformative solutions in urology. PROCEPT BioRobotics develops, manufactures and sells the AquaBeam Robotic System, an advanced, image-guided, surgical robotic system for use in minimally invasive urologic surgery with an initial focus on treating benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. BPH is the most common prostate disease and impacts approximately 40 million men in the United States. PROCEPT BioRobotics designed Aquablation therapy to deliver effective, safe and durable outcomes for males suffering from lower urinary tract symptoms, or LUTS, due to BPH that are independent of prostate size and shape or surgeon experience. The Company has developed a significant and growing body of clinical evidence, which includes over 150 peer-reviewed publications, supporting the benefits and clinical advantages of Aquablation therapy.
