Green Light Laser Services

Green Light Laser Services

St Francis Private Hospital is delighted to announce the introduction of green light laser services for patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

GreenLight uses laser energy to remove enlarged prostate tissue, resulting in an open channel for urine flow-through and a quick return to a life that's free of BPH symptoms.

GreenLight Laser Therapy is suitable for most patients with an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

GreenLight Laser Therapy is typically a day case procedure; meaning your patient can return home hours after the procedure, and can return to normal, non-strenuous activities within days.
