The appearance of new technologies has made its application to prostate surgery possible, with the appearance of surgery by vaporization with green laser. It is a surgery that is performed through the urethra, i.e. without opening the abdomen, which, unlike classical techniques, is a minimally invasive procedure.
It uses a small laser fiber that is introduced into the urethra using a high-power energy that vaporizes the prostate and at the same time coagulates the blood vessels, so that bleeding is non-existent or minimal. This technique does not cut the tissue, but converts it into vapor, reducing the surgical risks.
For all these reasons, we recommend prostate surgery with green laser as one of the most modern techniques of first choice in patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy, especially in those who have a surgical risk, since this technique is safer.
