Greenlight Therapy for Enlarged Prostate

What is GreenLight?

The GreenLight™ Laser Therapy is a treatment that combines the effectiveness of the traditional surgical procedure known as "Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate" (TURP) with fewer side effects.

GreenLight is suitable for most patients with an enlarged prostate. With over 200,000 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 PVP procedure and can return to normal, non-strenuous activities within days. The GreenLight laser system delivers the ultimate benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) solution — free from urinary symptoms, free from compromise, free to go!
