Is a GreenLight laser prostatectomy better than a TURP operation?
Both procedures aim to achieve the same goal, namely to remove excess prostate tissue. The difference relates to the energy source used in both procedures. With GreenLight there is less risk of bleeding, less risk of requiring a blood transfusion and less risk of erectile dysfunction. Patients are also usually in hospital for a shorter period of time.
