How does Laser Therapy work?
The tissue blocking your prostate is rapidly heated and vaporized and urine flow is almost immediately restored in most patients.
Typically, the procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and you’re able to go home the same day. Many patients go home without a urinary catheter. Most patients experience no other effects on their lifestyle or bodily functions as a result of their laser surgery.
What Happens During a Laser Therapy Procedure?
Enlarged Prostate Treatment
Before treatment begins, you may be asked to empty your bladder
You will then be brought into the procedure room and moved to the treatment bed where you will lie on your back
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep during the procedure
Once the anesthesia takes effect, your doctor will insert a small scope into your urethra, allowing your doctor to see the inner surfaces of the urethra, prostate and bladder
After the scope is in place, your doctor will advance the laser device through the scope to the location of the enlarged prostate tissue
Your doctor will then vaporize the prostate tissue that is obstructing urine flow
Tissue that is not immediately vaporized will pass naturally in your urine during the first few days after your surgery
A temporary urinary catheter may be placed at the end of the procedure to let urine drain from your bladder
What Happens After a Laser Therapy Procedure?
Prostate Treatment Typically Includes
Patients typically go home within a few hours after the procedure
You should arrange for a ride home
If a urinary catheter was placed in your bladder at the end of the procedure, it will typically be removed within 24 hours, however, some patients may require a catheter for a longer time
Most patients experience very rapid relief of symptoms and a dramatic improvement in urine flow, usually within 24 hours of the procedure
Your doctor will provide you with specific discharge instructions and information on signs and symptoms that may require further medical attention
You may experience slight burning during urination and see small amounts of blood in your urine for a week or so
You may experience greater frequency and urge to urinate, but this will likely resolve over time
Usually, you can return to your everyday activities within a short time after your Laser Therapy procedure
