A Leader in Male Urologic Health Greenlight Laser Therapy

Enlarged prostate is a condition affecting more than half of men over age 60. The condition can block the flow of urine and cause bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems.

At Concord Hospital, specialists have performed more than 500 laser therapy procedures, including Greenlight Laser Therapy, in which a laser beam restores urine flow by vaporizing prostate tissue and sealing the wound, decreasing the risk of bleeding. In the past, treatment options involved a lifetime of medication or surgery with an overnight Hospital stay.

“The laser therapy patient usually can go home within a couple of hours,” said Dr. Ronald Yap, the Men’s Urologic Health Program medical director.

This year, the American Urological Association embraced laser therapy as a standard, or mainline, treatment option, suggesting urology centers should consider offering the treatment.

“We’ve hit the ground running because instead of trying to bring it here, we’ve already done so many cases,” Dr. Yap said.

As part of its commitment to laser therapy, Concord Hospital invested in purchasing the appropriate laser equipment and technology.

“A lot of places rent the laser, which means they are not available for emergency procedures,” Dr. Yap said.

Expert Urology Care Close to Home

In addition to its office on Concord Hospital’s campus, the Center’s board-certified urologists practice in New London, Plymouth, and Wolfeboro, making it convenient for you to be seen close to home no matter where you live in Central New Hampshire.
