A Green Light Laser Prostatectomy patient's story

Harry Barbour talks about his experience having Green Light Laser Prostatectomy at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Edinburgh, in 2010.

"Having suffered for more than five years the various problems and indignities associated with an enlarged prostate, taking the medications prescribed, I was offered a Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) operation in an NHS hospital in the west of Scotland. The waiting list for this operation was nine weeks.

"Thank you for this
five star treatment"
Harry Barbour

"I carried out research on the internet to find out more about TURP. In the process I found an interesting article on “Green Light Laser Therapy”. The article convinced me to follow the ‘Green Light’.

"This was one of the best moves I have made in a long time.                           

"A further search took me to the Spire Murrayfield Hospital in Corstorphine, Edinburgh, where I made an appointment with the Urological Consultant Mr Riddick who explained the Green Light treatment and put me at complete ease with what was involved.

"The operation was success, and I was up and about after a good nights rest.

"I cannot thank Mr Riddick enough for what he has done. I am no longer bothered with all the problems I had before this treatment.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all his staff and other members of staff who made my short stay at the Murrayfield Hospital pleasant and comfortable.

Thank you for this five star treatment."
