During the procedure, a guide wire, as well as a catheter, are placed into the artery.

The procedure is conducted under the X-ray monitoring. Once the radiologist and the surgeon identify the right artery (by using a contrast fluid), the tiny particles are injected into the arteries, which are in charge of nourishing the prostate gland.

When the procedure finishes, the catheter is withdrawn.

  • review rating 5  I had been waiting 3 months for an MRI in the UK, so I contacted Bartek and Maja who operate with Eurotreatmed. They managed to get everything booked in and sorted for me, within 2 weeks i have flown to katowice had an MRI and got my results for a small fraction of the cost of what it would cost in the UK. Amazing and quick support from start to finish and I can not give enough thanks.

  • review rating 5  I can highly recommend Eurotreatmed service. Maja has been very helpful with arranging lens replacement service for my grandpa. She always responded quickly and answered our questions and doubts. The surgery was successful without any complications and my grandpa came back happy and now he can see much better. We did not know much about Katowice but it turned out to be an interesting place. He even managed to go for a one day trip to Auschwitz museum. The signs in the hospital were not in English but the staff assisted him and helped to move around. Overall great experience.

  • review rating 5  I was 100% satisfied with the services of EuroTreatMed in arranging, organising and overseeing my PAE procedure in Katowice two weeks ago. I had previously had elsewhere in Poland private dental and physiotherapy services, so was confident that although EuroTreatMed was new to me, I would find good quality prostate treatment there. Maja Swinder their Patient Coordinator has very good command of both written and spoken English, and there were no language barriers with her. In my opinion, she has also excellent customer care skills. I was in the clinic for three nights, and have needed about a week back home to fully recover. Overall, including travel costs, the price was substantially below that in the UK. I would use EuroTreatMed again for elective treatment in Poland

  • review rating 5  I have just returned from Katowice after having Trifocal lens replacement surgery arranged by Bartosz and Maja at EuroTreatMed. I am extremely happy with my surgery and cannot believe the actual result I now have. My vision is perfect. Bartosz and Maja are so wonderful to deal with and they looked after me at every stage of my treatment. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is considering this type of surgery.It is a very nervous time for anyone naturally but their care made sure that my anxieties were very short lived. My surgery was painless and very professional and It was also excellent value in comparison to UK providers.
