Transurethral Needle Ablation

If you are suffering with urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), the specialists in Jefferson's Department of Urology can offer transurethral needle ablation (TUNA) as a potential treatment.

This procedure is done on an outpatient basis and uses radio waves to destroy the section of your prostate that is preventing the flow of urine.
