Laser Prostatectomy for BPH

Laser therapy is a minimally invasive alternative to the surgical procedure called transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or an enlarged prostate. The benefits of the laser treatment include less risk of bleeding, less time with a catheter, a shorter hospital stay and a faster, less painful recovery. The laser treatment is particularly beneficial for patients who are taking blood thinners.
