While not all patients are eligible for the Greenlight Laser Therapy, there are still those that have persistent symptoms of an enlarged prostate despite previous attempts at medication and treatment. In the instances where a patient fits this mold, we offer them the Greenlight Laser Therapy. Essentially the process deals with aiming a laser at the cells that pose a problem and instantly vaporizes them. In addition, the laser energy is absorbed by the blood around the area which prevents excess bleeding, making the procedure almost bloodless. This procedure is also traditionally done on an outpatient basis, which means that you’ll be able to go home the same day as the surgery. Certain circumstances will dictate whether the patient will return home with or without a catheter.
