GreenLight Laser Therapy
An advanced urology treatment for enlarged prostates and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).
The GreenLight Laser Therapy treatment option provides rapid relief of symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In many cases, GreenLight™ Laser Therapy also offers a shorter hospital stay, less catheterization time, less bleeding, and a faster recovery than traditional surgical options. With over 375,000 patients treated, it has become an effective option for those looking to regain freedom from enlarged prostate symptoms.
Who is this for?
GreenLight is suitable for most patients with an enlarged prostate. One of the benefits of GreenLight is the speed in which the treatment works. Most patients return home a few short hours after the procedure and can return to normal, non-strenuous activities within days.
How it works
During the procedure, your doctor uses a laser to rapidly heat and vaporize the excess prostate tissue, resulting in a larger channel for urine to pass through. Removing the excess tissue rapidly restores natural urine flow in most patients.
The GreenLight laser procedure is typically performed on an outpatient and inpatient basis under general anesthesia. Most patients experience rapid relief of BPH symptoms and improvement in urine flow after the procedure. Your doctor can tell you more about the surgical procedure.
Every patient’s experience is different, and you should talk to your physician about what to expect. Patients typically go home within a few hours after the procedure. If a urinary catheter was placed in the bladder at the end of the procedure, it will typically be removed as soon as possible depending on the patient's individual health condition. However, some patients may require a catheter for a longer time. Patients can usually return to everyday activities within a short time. As with any medical procedure, complications can occur. Your doctor or urologist can discuss these with you.
