Laser treatment for interstitial cystitis patients should be limited to those who are positively diagnosed and have failed more conservative forms of therapy. The results are not as beneficial for patients with intractable pain but show only signs of glomerulation. When the laser is used within the proper power settings and the amount of energy applied during any one operative procedure is limited, the treatment is safe and can be very beneficial.
