Advanced Treatments for Enlarged Prostate
An enlarged prostate (BPH) is a common urologic problem many men face as they age. This can start as early as age 40. By age 60, about 7 in 10 men will have symptoms related to BPH.
The prostate is normally the size of a walnut and aids in sexual reproduction. As the prostate grows, sometimes getting as big as a baseball or softball, it can begin blocking the flow of urine from the bladder to the urethra. The blockage will lead to weak stream, straining, and starting and stopping of flow. It will also lead to problems with the bladder, which results in frequency, urgency and feeling like you can't empty. In some cases, the blockage can result in bladder failure requiring a permanent catheter, kidney failure, bladder stones, and recurrent urinary infections.
At UCI, we are dedicated to finding the right solution for you. Treatment options depend on the severity of your symptoms and the degree of blockage. At UCI, we are proud to offer the latest advancements in the area of prostate health, including UroLift for benign prostate enlargement and GreenLight Laser Therapy.
