Greenlight™ Laser Therapy
A Minimally Invasive Treatment for BPH or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
An alternative to a traditional surgical procedures to reduce the size of an enlarged prostate, Greenlight™ laser therapy is a revolutionary treatment option. With a shorter recovery time and fewer side effects, men can return to normal activity quicker in this simple outpatient procedure.
During the GreenLightTM procedure, Dr. Atwell uses a laser to remove excess prostate tissue. The laser can pinpoint the tissue to be removed without damaging the underlying structures. The result is a larger channel for urine flow to pass through, eliminating most lower urinary tract symptoms.
Studies have shown the results to be comparable to transurethral resection, or TURP, but with much less risk and minimal side effects. To determine if you are a candidate for Greenlight™ Laser Therapy, schedule a consultation by contacting Vero Urology Center.
