Prostate Green Light Laser Surgery in Lagos
The GreenLight Laser Prostatectomy is a relatively recent technique for treating urinary blockage caused by non-cancerous prostate enlargement.
A cystoscope (telescopic camera) and thin flexible fibre are threaded into the foreskin, up the urethra (water pipe), and through to the prostate in the GreenLight Laser Prostatectomy process. The surgeon looks through the cystoscope until it is properly placed in the prostatic section of the urethra and emits a high-power GreenLight laser energy that immediately vaporises prostatic tissue. This procedure is repeated until all obstructing prostate tissue has been removed.
