Understanding Laser Prostate Surgery
Laser prostate surgery can allow you to avoid the large incisions associated with traditional open surgical techniques, as this type of surgery is carried out using keyhole surgical techniques. As such, it's considered to carry a lower risk of complications, such as bacterial infection, and allows for a speedier recovery. A number of conditions are treated with laser prostate surgery, including prostate cancer and chronic urinary tract infections. So, if your doctor has suggested laser prostate surgery, understanding what's involved can help you decide whether to go ahead with this form of treatment.
