GreenLight PVP

The GreenLight PVP Laser Procedure offers a unique and simple solution to BPH because it combines the effectiveness of TURP, the surgical "gold standard", with the safety, comfort and ease of a minimally invasive treatment.

The GreenLight PVP Laser Procedure uses a very high powered laser to immediately vaporize and precisely remove enlarged prostate tissue. The physician views and controls a thin fiber inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope. This fiber releases laser energy that quickly vaporizes and precisely removes the enlarged prostate tissue.

Most patients return home a few short hours after the procedure and can return to normal,non-strenuous activities within days. The GreenLight PVP delivers the ultimate BPH solution without the complications and long recovery of the モgold standardヤ TUR of the prostate.

Photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) provides BPH patients with a new, minimally invasive surgical treatment option. This combines the effectiveness of surgically removing the enlarged prostate tissue, with the benefits of a minimally invasive procedure.

Patient Advantages of Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate:

  • Near bloodless, minimally invasive laser procedure
  • Outpatient treatment (avoiding two- to three-day hospital stay)
  • 20 to 50-minute procedure under general or epidural anesthesia
  • Quicker recovery
  • Often immediate relief from urinary symptoms
