Find Relief From Frustrating BPH Symptoms With GreenLight Laser Therapy

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is one of the most common urologic conditions among men — and it gets increasingly common with age. In fact, about half of men between ages 51 and 60 have BPH, and that number just climbs with each decade of life.

BPH isn’t cancerous, but it can bring about frustrating symptoms that impact both your daily activities and your overall quality of life. The constant urge to urinate, difficulty starting and stopping, and a weakened urinary stream are just a few of the challenges that BPH creates.

The good news? You have treatment options. Our team at Advanced Urology offers GreenLight Laser Therapy for men at our offices in Culver City, Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, and San Pedro, California.

It’s a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment to relieve the frustrating symptoms of BPH. Here’s what you need to know.

The impact of BPH

BPH, or an enlarged prostate, is a non-cancerous condition that affects your prostate. Your prostate is a small gland that sits below your bladder, and its primary function is producing fluid for semen.

Your prostate surrounds your urethra. As you age, your prostate tends to grow larger, and this growth can lead to a variety of bothersome symptoms. A large prostate can constrict or block your urinary passage. This can cause symptom like:

Although BPH isn’t life-threatening, it can significantly impact your quality of life. If any of these symptoms sound familiar to you, it’s time to learn more about GreenLight Laser Therapy at Advanced Urology.

How GreenLight Laser Therapy treats BPH

GreenLight Laser Therapy is an innovative treatment option for BPH. It’s a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that uses laser technology to precisely remove excess prostate tissue and deliver relief from urinary symptoms.

After administering anesthesia, we start the procedure by inserting a small fiber-optic scope into your urethra. The scope reaches your prostate and delivers laser energy to excess tissue in the area. The laser removes the excess tissue to improve urine flow.

Treatment is highly precise, ensuring effective relief from BPH symptoms and minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. You can go home as soon as the procedure is complete, and many men notice an improvement in their symptoms within 24 hours.

Since there are no incisions with GreenLight Laser Therapy, patients enjoy a lower risk of complications and quicker recovery times compared with traditional surgical approaches. GreenLight Laser Therapy can offer lasting relief from the most bothersome symptoms of BPH — all without the need for more invasive surgery or long-term medication management.

With GreenLight Laser Therapy, it’s possible to feel like yourself again. Find out if you’re a candidate with a personalized consultation at Advanced Urology. Call us at 310-670-9119 or request an appointment online today.
