Phelps Memorial Hospital Center Urologists are Now Using Breakthrough Laser Surgery to Treat Prostate Problems
Date:5/10/2013

SLEEPY HOLLOW, New York (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

A new laser treatment for Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) called Green Light XPS is being performed at Phelps Memorial Hospital Center in Sleepy Hollow, New York. There is little bleeding associated with the treatment, so even men taking blood thinners are candidates. All men with BPH benefit from this new, powerful laser treatment, which enables them to stop taking prostate medications permanently.

Often, people who have primary conditions such as atrial fibrillation, cardiac stents, stroke, pulmonary embolis, deep vein thrombosis or coronary artery disease need to take anti-coagulants to prevent severe complications from these disease processes. In the past, men with these conditions who then develop voiding difficulties due to an enlarged prostate have not been able to have surgery because stopping the anti-coagulants would increase the risks associated with their primary condition. They generally have to rely on medications. If the medications to treat their enlarged prostate become ineffective, however, the therapeutic options other than surgery – such as a permanent catheter – have been limited and usually not desirable. Now, Green Light XPS provides a surgical option for all men with BPH, including those taking blood thinners.

Phelps Memorial Hospital Center urologists Jack Hershman, MD and Arno Housman, MD had been using earlier versions of this and other laser system for years, but those lasers were much less powerful and less effective for treating even normal BPH and were not appropriate for men taking blood thinners. Green Light XPS is powerful enough to treat even large glands rapidly and it results in far less bleeding than older t
