WHAT IS BPH OR BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERTROPHY?

BPH or benign prostatic hypertrophy is also known as benign prostatic enlargement. The prostate grows because of aging, testosterone, and genetics. In essence, the prostate grows every day of your life. This growth causes narrowing of the urethra and blockage to the flow of urine. The bladder muscle compensates for the blockage by hypertrophy (getting thicker) which allows it to squeeze stronger. Once the bladder develops too much hypertrophy (gets too thick), it can not stretch as easily and contract as well. Symptoms such as night time urination, increased urinary frequency, urgency, slower stream, incomplete bladder emptying, and dribbling develop. As the prostate gets larger with time, testosterone, and genetics, the disease progresses further, and the bladder can not hypertrophy any more and scarring in the bladder wall sets in. This causes the stream to slow and urination takes longer. Without resolution of obstruction, permanent bladder and kidney damage can result from urine backed up in the bladder.

GOALS OF BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERTROPHY TREATMENT

IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE

The most important goal of BPH treatment is alleviating blockage from your prostate to improve your quality of life and preserve your kidney and bladder function.

PRESERVE SEXUAL FUNCTION

The second goal of treatment is to preserve sexual function. (erections, ejaculation, orgasm).

MEDICINES

Medicines are often tried first and side effects include dementia, dizziness, sexual dysfunction, diabetes and prostate cancer. Medicines include tamsulosin, finasteride, dutasteride, uroxatral.

MINOR PROCEDURES

Advanced Urolift is a proprietary technique that provides the best outcomes with no sexual side effects. We utilize Endoluxe Vision technology to precisely place Urolift sutures. This targeted millimeter accuracy improves outcomes and minimizes side effects. This procedure is done endoscopically (no cuts or incision) and you are sent home without a catheter.

ADVANCED TREATMENT OPTIONS

ADVANCED UROLIFT

Advanced Urolift is a revolutionary procedure to alleviate prostate obstruction and improve urinary symptoms. This procedure is done endoscopically without cuts or incisions for prostates less than 80 grams in size. Sutures pull apart the prostate to relieve obstruction. Best of all there are no sexual side effects and there is no catheter after the procedure. Advanced Urology has the most Urolift Centers of Excellence. Urolift is covered by most insurances including Medicare, Aetna, United, Cigna, Anthem/Blue Cross, Ambetter, and Humana.

BIPOLAR PROSTATE RESECTION

Bipolar prostate resection is a modern and highly effective treatment to remove blockage from large prostates above 80 grams in size. This procedure is done endoscopically so there are no cuts or incisions. Tissue is cut using an electrical cutting arc and the prostate tissue is removed. This instantly removes blockage. For patients who are in urinary retention and can not void, this procedure is highly effective. This precisely removes prostate tissue with minimal damage to surrounding tissues. This millimeter accuracy leads to great outcomes and minimal side effects. This preserves erections, urinary control, and orgasm. Ejaculation is not preserved.

ADVANCED ROBOTIC SURGERY

Robotic surgery (more specifically robotic simple prostatectomy) is a great option for partial prostate gland removal for very large prostates over 100 grams in size. Only the obstructing prostate tissue is removed, and the nerves and blood vessels supplying the are left untouched. This preserves function. This often has the highest success rate for large glands. Robotic surgery is done through 5 small incisions as an outpatient. Most patients are sent home the same day with minimal pain. Benefits of surgery include less bleeding, shorter catheter time, and improved long term outcomes.

ADVANCED LASER ENUCLEATION

Laser enucleation of the prostate is a modern and highly effective treatment to remove blockage from large prostates between 100g and 250g+ in size. This procedure is done endoscopically so there are no cuts or incisions. Tissue peeled from the surrounding tissue with minimal laser energy to the nerves and surrounding tissue and the prostate tissue is removed. This instantly removes blockage. This is particularly effective for patients on blood thinners as laser energy has minimal bleeding and minimal side effects. This preserves erections, and orgasm. Ejaculation is not preserved.
