PVP (Photo-Selective Vaporization of the Prostate) at World Class Hospitals in India

Novalis Tx Radiosurgery in India

This procedure is also known as Greenlight HPS, Greenlight PV, Laser Prostatectomy, Laser TURP etc. and is a new advancement in laser prostate surgery and an alternative to traditional prostate surgery (TURP) for enlarged prostate. This laser treatment of the prostate is a new, minimally invasive surgical technique for treating Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), or enlargement of the prostate.

This procedure has few advantages over traditional TURP like, quicker recovery, minimal blood loss, minimal side effects, dramatic increase in the urine flow, quick return to normal activities, long lasting symptom relief and usually no need for a catheter after the procedure in most of the cases.

Patients referred for consideration of PVP will have a full medical history and prostate examination and would undergo ultrasound, urinary flow test, PSA test, blood investigations etc.Request a Call BackRequest a Call Back

Photoselective Vaporisation of the Prostate (PVP) uses a powerful, green laser to vaporise the prostate and hence produce a reduction in prostate size like the TURP. The green light is selectively absorbed by the red prostate tissue hence photoselective. The laser is delivered through a fibre passed down a telescope (cystoscope) through which the prostate can be viewed. There is minimal bleeding associated with this technique and with small prostates it is possible to leave the patient without a catheter after the operation.

As far as complications are concerned, Green Light Laser has fewer complications than traditional prostate surgical treatments, side effects of the treatment still occur. The Green Light laser has been shown to have shorter hospital stays and fewer complications. As with all prostate surgery, sexual side effects may include retrograde ejaculation and in rare instances, erectile dysfunction (impotence, about 1%). Rare episodes of strictures (scar tissue build up) have been noted in urethra (urine tube).Post a QueryRefer a Patient

How does the Green Light Laser PVP work?

A thin fiber is inserted into the urethra through a cystocscope. The fiber delivers green laser energy that quickly vaporizes and precisely removes enlarged prostate tissue. The physician is able to safely view and control the treatment area, tailoring it to each patient’s anatomy and needs. Natural urine flow is immediately restored and urinary symptoms are relieved quickly. Post a QueryRefer a Patient

What People Say about us

"To discover that I suffered from enlarged Prostate which had some cancer involvement was quite a shock for me just after I turned 55 years last December. . I then went to the Internet and found BestCancerhospitalIndia website amongst several several others. I sent e-mails off with my specific problem outlined to three sites. Almost instantly I received a response from a top hospital in India asking for my medical reports, which I mailed to them.

Just the next day I got another email with so much of valuable information about the treatment options I had and the profiles of the doctors and number of surgeries performed by them. I followed their advice for a Robotic Prostate Surgery that would also take care of my other concerns about cancer spill and impotency.

Now just 2 weeks later, I am glad that I made a quick decision and I am feeling much better and walking unassisted and ready to return home. I attribute this to the world class technology here in India and the skill of the surgeon and staff who have worked so hard to get me back on the feet. The staff at the hospital are all smiles and very helpful. I enjoyed all my meals during my stay. I would recommend anyone who needs a Prostate Surgery to go for the Robotic option, its a bit expensive but the pay offs are superb - less pain, quick recovery and no fear of complications."

Thanks you all and God bless you ! -
