Laser Surgery in Urology
  • Kidney stones. Kidney and ureteric stones are treated using Holmium Yag laser. This allows safe and effective fragmentation of any type of stone present anywhere along the urinary tract.
  • Prostate enlargement. Green Light Laser Prostatectomy is used to evaporate the prostatic tissue to create a channel for better flow. This is a safe and effective treatment with minimal bleeding and early discharge from the hospital.
  • Laser treatment of small superficial bladder tumours under local anaesthesia through a flexible scope. Mr Syed is an expert in laser treatment of recurrent bladder cancer. He has the longest prospective study over 6 years treatment of these patients. Excellent local cancer control and 100% patient satisfaction.
  • Laser treatment of urethral stricture or bladder neck stenosis. Holmium laser is also used for opening up narrow strictures of the water pipe (urethra or bladder neck area).
