GreenLight™ Laser Therapy uses a laser to remove prostate tissue. The laser treatment is delivered through a thin, flexible fiber, which is inserted into the urethra through an instrument called a cystoscope.
Frequently Asked Questions
A small fiber is inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope. The fiber carries laser energy which quickly removes prostate tissue. The tissue removal will allow urine to pass through freely. Natural urine flow is rapidly restored and urinary symptoms are quickly relieved in most patients.
