Photoselective Vaporization of Prostate is a minimally invasive procedure that treats an enlarged prostate, a condition termed as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Unlike conventional surgery options for treating enlarged prostate, laser PVP surgery provides a treatment without cutting or scraping tissue. Being a laser procedure, there is less blood loss, making laser PVP surgery a good option for men who have blood-clotting problems.
PVP procedure uses laser to vaporize or burn away excess tissue in the prostate that is blocking the urine flow. Like other minimally invasive treatments, PVP leads to faster relief and recovery as compared to the invasive prostate surgery.
