In brief: Ask surgeon+hospital

1) ask office how many urologist has done all together, then how many in past year. 2) ask hospital who performs most procedures there and how many urologist in question has done.

In brief: Excellent question

Firstly find out where the urologist performs the green light surgery then how many the urologist has performed all together, and how many in the past year. Then you can check with the hospital and find the same information.
Neither should have anything to hide. You may also ask how many patients developed strictures (narrowing) of bladder neck following surgery. Don't hesitate to get 2nd opinion.
