Greenlight Laser Therapy

Greenlight Laser Therapy is a minimally invasive surgery that is used to relieve the signs and symptoms that is affected by an enlarged prostate. This uses a small thin and flexible fibre that enters the urethra by using a cystoscopy. These fibres heat up through lasers to vaporize excess prostate tissue. This removes obstruction from the urethra and restores regular urine flow from the bladder.

Why do you need Greenlight Laser Therapy?

This procedure is often used to treat the signs and symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), this is refers to the enlargement of the prostate. This gives way for urine to flow normally from the bladder, and it immediately relieves symptoms. Usually this would be performed on patients who stay the night at the hospital or as an outpatient procedure. The catheter is used to drain out the urine after an enlarged prostate procedure, it holds its place for less than 24 hours. The recovery process for this procedure is fast.

Essentially, this procedure is used to relieve symptoms to make sure the current condition does not progress to a worsen state. Especially when urine flow is blocked, this can also be used to keep in check recurring UTIs, kidney damage, bladder stones and incontinence (lack of urination control).
