Transition from Greenlight to ProTouch laser:

I was using the GreenLight Laser for BPH in more than 400 cases until I learned of the ProTouch 1470 nm diode laser manufactured by Convergent Laser Technologies of Alameda, CA. Over the past 3 years, I’ve done at least 250 cases of BPH enucleation and other soft tissues surgeries by using the ProTouch. It is an amazing surgical tool which provides a clean and clear field of view due to strong hemostasis; I was able to view the plane to cut tissue effectively. Additionally, this is a must have tool to learn BPH enucleation technique which offers faster and safer operations.

After each procedure, I would ask every one of my patients the following questions:

  1. Are you pleased with the operation?
  2. Faced with the same decision, would you choose this operation again?
  3. Would you recommend this operation to a friend?

The overwhelmingly consistent response is “ABSOLUTELY!


Patient Testimonial:

“This procedure was performed April 23, 2015 and I was able to go home that same day.

Due to an exceptional recovery time with this procedure (TULEP – TransUrethral Laser Enucleation of the Prostate), by the third week I ran a 4 mile race and finishing second in the 75 – 79 age group.

My sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Rotolo for the successful prostate surgery he performed.”
