Green Light Laser Surgery for Enlarged Prostate
Green Light Laser Therapy is a minimally invasive surgical option for enlarged prostate (BPH) that combines the effectiveness of the traditional surgical procedure known as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), but with less painful recovery, decreased risk for side effects, less bleeding and shorter catheterizations. Miami urologists David Robbins, MD and Amery Wirtshafter, MD routinely perform Green Light Laser procedures.
Green Light Laser therapy to treat enlarged prostate tissue results in a wide open prostate channel for improved urine flow and a quicker return to normal life activities free from bothersome BPH symptoms.
Green Light Laser surgery is typicall performed in an outpatient setting; meaning patients return home within hours of the procedure. After Green Light Laser surgery patients can typically return to normal non-strenuous activities within days. The Green Light Laser system is able to deliver the ultimate treatment for enlarged prostate (BPH) with freedom from bothersome urinary symptoms.
Miami urologists Dr. David Robbins and Dr. Amery Wirtshafter have extensive experience with Green Light Laser surgery for BPH or enlarged prostate and have been providing this service to patients in the Miami region and surrounding areas since Green Light Laser surgery was first introduced.
