Greenlight Laser Therapy
LASER VAPORIZATION OF THE PROSTATE (UTILIZING GREENLIGHT™ LASER THERAPY) IS A TECHNIQUE THAT USES A SPECIAL LASER TO HEAT AND VAPORIZE THE PROSTATE TISSUE THAT IS OBSTRUCTING PART OF THE URETHRA.
In studies comparing the laser technique with the more traditional surgical procedure called Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP), GreenLight Laser Therapy improves BPH symptoms and quality of life as effectively, but with fewer side effects.
Most men are good candidates for laser vaporization therapy, which is an outpatient procedure. In this procedure, a small fiber is inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope. Laser energy is delivered through the fiber to remove the enlarged prostate tissue, restoring natural urine flow and relieving symptoms of BPH quickly.
