“As men live into their 50's and beyond it is nearly inevitable that they will develop some degree of urinary symptoms secondary to BPH. These symptoms will most likely progress and often intervention becomes necessary,” stated Dr. Craig Smith, speaker for the AARP Enlarged Prostate Solutions session. “As technology has advanced we are now able to provide same day, in-office, minimally invasive procedures that do not require medication, have few side effects and can result in years of sustainable results for our patients.”
The Enlarged Prostate Solutions session will review common symptoms, prevention, and treatment options for an Enlarged Prostate with a focus on educating patients on In-Office BPH Therapies. This session promises to be a very informative and valuable session for men who are currently experiencing urinary symptoms as well as their significant others.
BPH affects the majority of men over the age of 50 and can create irritating symptoms which significantly impact quality of life. Most patients are unaware that there is a non-surgical option that may prevent them from having to take medications for the rest of their lives. Urologix’ office-based therapies such as Cooled ThermoTherapy and Prostiva RF Therapy were first developed over 15 years ago and have evolved to be market leading non-surgical options. These treatments are proven to be safe, effective and long-lasting options and are included as recommended treatment options from the American Urology Association guidelines.
