Center of Excellence Recognizes High Degree of Experience with New Technology

[Newburgh, NY]- Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall announced today that Dr. Jaspreet Singh, Co-Medical Director of Men’s Health and Urology Services has been designated as a Center of Excellence for GreenLight™ Laser Therapy treatment – a minimally invasive outpatient procedure for men looking to treat their benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), not just the symptoms. 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. In addition, GreenLight Laser Therapy requires no incisions and typically has no overall deleterious impact on sexual function.1 The Center of Excellence designation recognizes Dr. Singh’s high degree of experience with GreenLight Laser Therapy and commitment to delivering effective, long-lasting therapy to men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).1

BPH is a condition in which a man’s prostate enlarges and squeezes the urethra, causing frustrating symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, a weak or interrupted urine stream, and the need to get up several times a night to urinate. It affects about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85.2

“Being designated as a GreenLight Center of Excellence is a meaningful recognition for us, as we strive to provide the best possible treatment of urological conditions for patients in the Hudson Valley Region and beyond,” said Dr. Singh. “For years, the primary options for treating BPH were through behavior modifications, medications or invasive surgery. However, medications may not work for everyone and may have undesirable side effects such as dizziness, sexual dysfunction and lower sex drive.3 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.”

GreenLight Laser Therapy uses laser energy to vaporize the enlarged tissue, creating an open channel for urine to pass through the urethra. In addition to typically experiencing immediate improvements in urine flow, many patients are pleased to know that GreenLight typically has no overall deleterious impact on sexual function.1 GreenLight Laser therapy is a long-term solution without the need for BPH medication.1

“I was so thankful when my physician told me that Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall began offering GreenLight Therapy,” said Craig Andrews, Age 58 of Wallkill, NY who received GreenLight Therapy from Dr. Singh. “After years of waking up multiple times a night to use the bathroom and not being happy with the results of my medications, it was truly amazing to have an effective, minimally invasive therapy available to me that didn’t require hospitalization. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Singh who introduced me to this procedure and as a result, changed my life. The best part is I was back to doing the activities I love just a few days after the procedure.”

GreenLight Therapy is currently being used in many leading urology practices throughout the United States. To date, more than 1 million patients around the world have been successfully treated with GreenLight Therapy.4
