Urology of Indiana Board Certified Urologist, Scott C. Pike, MD, has been designated as the first Center of Excellence for Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate (PVP) in the state of Indiana. PVP, also known as GreenLight™ Laser Therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure for men looking to treat their BPH – also known as Enlarged Prostate.
GreenLight Therapy can help provide immediate relief from enlarged prostate symptoms such as frequent urination (especially at night), weak urine flow, urgency and incomplete bladder emptying. It uses laser energy to vaporize the enlarged tissue, creating an open channel for urine to pass through the urethra.
In addition, GreenLight Laser Therapy requires no incisions and typically has no overall negative impact on sexual function. The Center of Excellence designation recognizes Dr. Pike’s high degree of experience with GreenLight Laser Therapy and a commitment to delivering effective, long-lasting therapy to men suffering from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.
“Being designated as a GreenLight Center of Excellence is a meaningful recognition, as we strive to provide appropriate options and the best possible treatment of urological conditions for patients throughout Indiana. With GreenLight Therapy, we’re able to provide relief of BPH for men who do not want to take medication or want to avoid invasive surgery and implants,” said Dr. Pike.
