Â Â GreenLightâ„¢Â Laser Therapy is a procedure performedÂ with a small fibre that is inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope. Delivering high poweredÂ laser energy, the prostate tissue is quickly heated up which causes the tissue to vaporize. This process isÂ continued until all of the enlarged prostate tissueÂ has been removed. Natural urine flow is rapidlyÂ restored and urinary symptoms are quickly relievedÂ in most patients.
GreenLight Laser Therapy combines the effectivenessÂ of the â€œgold standardâ€ transurethral resection of theÂ prostate (TURP) surgical procedure with fewer sideÂ effects. The result is a wide open channel for urineÂ flow to pass through, but with fewer risks of sideÂ effects, including erectile dysfunction and bleeding,Â common with TURP.
Mr Harriss is trained in performing GreenLight Laser Therapy Â and has performed many of these time-saving procedures. All Green Light Laser Surgery takes place at the BMI Park Hospital, Nottingham. Typically no overnight stayÂ is needed. However, in some cases when a patientÂ travels a long distance, has other medical conditionsÂ to consider, or is in frail condition an overnight stayÂ may be recommended.

[cudazi_quote]…I felt as though i could not have been treated any better from the moment I walked in to reception I waited no more than 5 minutes when I was called down to see you personally.Â After our little conversation I was taken upstairs by the nurse sat in a room for 15 minutes when I was called to get prepared for surgery.Â At about 9.30am I was ushered into the prep room where I was administered the drug to freeze me from the waist down.Â At 9.50 I was taken into the operating room where I was greeted by yourselfÂ and one other.Â I was fascinated to see that I could watch the operation as it progressed,at 1035 the operation had been done and I was moved to a recovery room which I laid there for about an hour until I had some feeling back in my legs.Then I was transferred to a general ward ….When I got home it was three weeks before I stopped passing blood through the urine.Â Finally my whole experience and pleasure at the results of this laser surgery is–Â Other patients should have no problems with this type of surgery it is quick, less time consuming, and less bleeding.Â But the best thing is I suffered absolutely no pain. Please continue with the good work you do.[/cudazi_quote]
