My understanding is that FLA, at least as performed by Dr. K, is done using a twilight anesthesia. Therefore the patient is not unconscious. FLA also takes a number of hours to accomplish. It doesn't seem realistic to me to expect a patient to lie motionless for many hours at a time. What happens if the patient moves while the laser is ablating prostate material? I recently had an MRI on my knee and found it quite difficult to remain completely motionless for 30 minutes.
