How Does it Work?

The GreenLight laser is able to deliver up to 180 watts directly to the prostate tissue, which results in .
This high-powered technology allows surgeons to remove more of the obstructing prostate tissue in a shorter amount of time than other laser therapy treatments.

Procedure

The procedure is performed under anesthesia. Firstly, a telescopic camera known as a cystoscope and a thin, flexible fiber are inserted into the penis, through the urethra, and to the prostate.

Once it is positioned correctly, the surgeon looks through the cystoscope and administers a high power of laser energy that instantly and gently vaporizes the prostatic tissue. The surgeon continues this process until all of the obstructing tissue is removed, which allows the restoration of urinary flow.

Once the operation is finished, a catheter will be placed inside the urethra in order to drain the urine out of the bladder. This catheter will remain in place for 6 hours, or until the morning after your procedure.

Duration

Typically, the procedure takes about 1 hour. After the operation, patients are transferred to the recovery ward, where they are monitored for about another hour to ensure that there are no problems.

Recovery

The procedure does not require patients to stay overnight following the procedure, but in some cases, it may be necessary. Patients typically only spend one night in recovery, then may return home the following day.

Once the catheter has been removed, patients may return to their daily activities within a few days. It is recommended that strenuous activities should be avoided for a bit longer.

Risks

While fewer risks are associated with GreenLight Laser Therapy compared to other surgical treatments, there are still some side effects that may occur.

Potential risks can include retrograde ejaculation (dry orgasms), or in very rare cases, erectile dysfunction or a build up of scar tissue in the urethra.

Patients may also experience issues holding urine, which could be a result of the procedure or to changes in the bladder related to the enlarged prostate.
