Greenlight™ For Enlarged Prostate (BPH)
About the Greenlight™ procedure
A common symptom of an enlarged prostate is incontinence and difficulty urinating as the urethra becomes squashed and obstructed. The Green light laser vapourises excess prostate tissue surrounding the urethra and offers significant benefits over traditional surgery and medication such as:
- Rapid improvement and a quick return to normal activities.
- No cutting, stitches or removal of prostate tissue.
- Preservation of sexual sensation with no adverse erectile dysfunction.
- Typically taking just 30 minutes you can go home in less than 24 hours.
- Permanent and highly effective relief from urination problems.
