Dr. Michael McDonald
Dr. Michael McDonald is the medical director for Endourology at Advent Health Celebration, in Celebration, Florida. Dr. McDonald has been instrumental in advancing new technologies in urological surgery at Advent Health including virtual reality imaging and working on the amalgamation of electronic health record systems for all patients. Dr. McDonald first saw the Procept BioRobotics AquaBeam system in 2015 at the World Congress of Endourology. He felt this would cause a generational shift in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Since instituting Aquablation therapy at Advent Health Celebration in early 2020, Dr. McDonald has been impressed by the dramatic improvement of BPH symptoms in patients, the decreased side effect profile compared to the traditional surgical treatment of BPH and the ease of use of the system. Aquablation therapy truly is a new wave in the surgical treatment of BPH combining real time imaging with robotic execution for patients suffering from BPH.

All surgical treatments have inherent and associated side effects. Individual’s outcomes may depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to patient characteristics, disease characteristics and/or surgeon experience. The most common side effects are mild and transient and may include mild pain or difficulty when urinating, discomfort in the pelvis, blood in the urine, inability to empty the bladder or a frequent and/or urgent need to urinate, and bladder or urinary tract infection. Other risks include ejaculatory dysfunction and a low risk of injury to the urethra or rectum where the devices gain access to the body for treatment. Further, there may be other risks as in other urological surgery, such as anesthesia risk or the risk of infection, including the potential transmission of blood borne pathogens. For more information about potential side effects and risks associated with Aquablation therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) treatment, speak with your urologist or surgeon.
