In brief: No
Greenlight photovaporization of the prostate is a surgical procedure performed on men with bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms due to enlarged prostate.
It is performed in an operating room (procedure center, hospital, ambulatory surgery center) with anesthesia (general/spinal). There are procedures that can be performed in the office for bph, but greenlight is not one of them.

The Greenlight procedure requires great skill as every procedure has potential risks. An experienced urologist is the only type of physician who should perform this procedure.
