What Is BPH?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a very common condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. An enlarged prostate leads to urinary symptoms such as a frequent need to urinate, an inability to completely empty your bladder, and a urinary stream that start and stops, among others.

What is GreenLight™ Laser Therapy?

GreenLight™ Laser Therapy is a minimally invasive treatment option that combines the effectiveness of the traditional surgical procedure known as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) with fewer side effects. The GreenLight laser system delivers the ultimate BPH solution – free from urinary symptoms, free from compromise, free to go!

GreenLight is suitable for most patients with an enlarged prostate. With nearly 500,000 procedures performed worldwide, the GreenLight procedure is creating a new standard of care – a standard that offers freedom from enlarged prostate symptoms.

Most patients return home a few short hours after the GreenLight procedure and can return to normal, non-strenuous activities within days.
