These sessions are scheduled for Saturday afternoon, March 29 and will feature Robert G. Pugach, MD - a pioneer in the area of in-office BPH therapy - and Medical Director of Pacific Coast Urology Medical Center.
“This conference is an excellent opportunity for urologists to interact with their peers to learn more about treating serious urologic problems.” said Greg Fluet, Chief Executive Officer of Urologix. “Our session will provide attendees with information about how adopting both Cooled ThermoTherapy and Prostiva RF Therapy for the treatment of BPH will help them safely and effectively treat a broader patient population, in the office setting, delivering very cost effective outcomes.“
BPH, also known as enlarged prostate, affects the majority of men as they age and can create bothersome symptoms which significantly impact quality of life. This disease continues to be predominantly treated with medications; however, research has shown that drugs are not always effective and can produce unpleasant side effects. Urologix’s in-office BPH Therapies, Cooled ThermoTherapy and Prostiva RF Therapy, the marketing leading non-surgical options, have proven their results through numerous clinical studies and are recommended treatment options within American Urology Association guidelines.
