How are lasers used in Urology?

Various types of lasers are used to successfully treat numerous conditions of the urinary and genital systems. They include: urinary stones, cancers of the kidney lining, ureters and urinary bladder, obstructions due to narrowing of the uretero-pelvic junction, ureteral strictures, benign enlargement of the prostate (BPH), urethral strictures, benign condylomas (warts) of the penis and urethra, and superficial cancers of the penis.

Most of these treatments may require general anesthesia and can be performed as outpatient procedures with little or no blood loss and excellent results.
