3 doctors agree
In brief: Hopefully
Green laser should remove obstructing prostatic tissue so the bladder can empty more easily, this in turn should correct the urinary retention.

In brief: Laser treatment
If you have significant urinary retention, laser treatment to the prostate may not remove enough tissue to relieve the obstruction.
At 83 yrs of age, i would recommend traditional turp.
