GreenLight laser

GreenLight laser PVP (photoselective vaporisation of the prostate) is a minimally invasive treatment for benign prostate disease that delivers a beam of green light to vaportise overgrown prostate tissue from benign prostate disease. GreenLight laser treatment eliminates the risk of bleeding in benign prostate surgery and allows for safe day case surgery and a quicker return to normal activity for patients.

The first GreenLight laser case in Wales was performed in Bridgend in 2004 by Prostate Cymru Chairman Andy Thomas. The first GreenLight laser unit at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend, now considered a centre of excellence for this type of treatment, was established with funds raised by GLAZE Prostate Charity (now Prostate Cymru) that was established by the late Ray Murray, his wife Lyn and Andy Thomas in 2003.

In 2016, The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended the GreenLight Laser treatment for benign prostate disease to the NHS in England and Wales.
