TUNA Therapy, which usually takes 9 minutes is an in office procedure that is performed under local anesthetic. The patient is usually able to return to many normal activities within 24-48 hours. TUNA Therapy is covered by Medicare and virtually all insurances. In the TUNA procedure, obstructive prostate tissue is destroyed (ablated) using radio-frequency (RF) energy. Only the obstructive tissue is destroyed. The urethra and the rest of the prostate remain intact as before.

There is virtually no discomfort during or after the TUNA procedure. A patient will usually notice improvement within 2-6 weeks. However, results may vary depending on the size of the prostate treated.

Clinical studies have demonstrated that treatment with the TUNA system offers improved urine flow, excellent symptom relief and few side effects and adverse events, when compared to traditional surgical treatment. In addition, in the clinical trials, there were no reports of incontinence. TUNA Therapy has successfully helped about 1,000 patients in our practice.
