Prostate laser surgery in Ludhiana, Punjab is used to relieve moderate to severe injury symptoms which happens due to large prostate and the condition is known as BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia). During the prostate laser surgery, the doctor will insert a scope through the penis tip into the tube and this carries urine from the bladder. The urethra is surrounded by a prostate.
