Prostate Laser Surgery is used to relieve moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Prostate laser surgery treatment begins with the sexologist inserting a scope through the tip of the penis into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra). The urethra is surrounded by the prostate and a laser is passed through the scope. The laser delivers energy that is used to shrink or to remove the excess tissue that is blocking the urethra and preventing urine flow. There are different types of prostate laser surgery namely Photoselective vaporization of the prostate, Holmium laser ablation of the prostate and Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate. The type of prostate laser surgery that your doctor will perform depends on several factors such as including the size of your prostate, your health, the type of laser equipment available and your doctor's training. Green light laser treatment is a procedure used in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, an enlargement of the prostate gland resulting in urethral restriction. Prostate laser surgery can take from 30 minutes to a couple of hours depending on the size and anatomy of the prostate being treated. After the surgery, you may experience a urinary catheter in place because urine flow is blocked by swelling. Prostate laser surgery improves urinary flow in most men and often, results are long lasting.
