Green Light Technology
Almater Hospital uses the newest and most sophisticated GreenLight laser technology.
The GreenLight XPS is an innovative laser treatment that combines the effectiveness of transurethral prosthetic resection with the safety and ease of a minimally invasive procedure. Unlike original laser and thermal technologies, the Greenlight Laser immediately removes enlarged prostatic tissue. The laser energy vaporizes and precisely removes obstructing prosthetic tissue in a virtually bloodless procedure. Most patients treated with the GreenLight XPS are released from hospital within a few hours of the procedure and are allowed to return home without a catheter and can return to normal non-strenuous activity within days.More about Eliminating Kidney Stones and Gallstones
