Designated as a Center of Excellence for GreenLight™ Laser Therapy, a Treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), or Enlarged Prostate
Center of Excellence Recognizes High Degree of Experience with New Technology
November 3, 2020, Urology of Virginia announced that Dr. Gregg Eure and Dr. Joshua Langston have been designated as a Center of Excellence for GreenLight™ Laser Therapy. Dr. Gregg Eure was the first in the state of Virginia to be recognized with this award and Dr. Langston put the number in Virginia to four providers.
GreenLight Laser Therapy is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure for men looking to treat their benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), not just the symptoms. GreenLight Therapy can help provide immediate relief from enlarged prostate symptoms such as frequent urination—especially at night, weak urine flow, urgency and incomplete bladder emptying. In addition, GreenLight Laser Therapy requires no incisions and typically has no overall deleterious impact on sexual function.1 The Center of Excellence designation recognizes their high degree of experience with GreenLight Laser Therapy and commitment to delivering effective, long-lasting therapy to men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).1
BPH is a condition in which a man’s prostate enlarges and squeezes the urethra, causing frustrating symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, a weak or interrupted urine stream, and the need to get up several times a night to urinate. It affects about 50% of men by age 60 and up to 90% of men by age 85.2
Being designated as a GreenLight Center of Excellence is a meaningful recognition for the Urology of Virginia, providing the best possible treatment of urological conditions for patients.
For years, the primary options for treating BPH were through behavior modifications, medications, or invasive surgery. However, medications may not work for everyone and may have undesirable side effects such as dizziness, sexual dysfunction, and lower sex drive.3 With GreenLight Therapy, relief is provided for men who do not want to take medication or want to avoid other types of treatments.
GreenLight Therapy is currently being used in many leading urology practices throughout the United States. To date, more than 1 million patients around the world have been successfully treated with GreenLight Therapy.4
