BPH treatment

is a common condition that affects men as they age, causing urinary symptoms and impacting quality of life.

Overview

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition that affects men as they age. BPH occurs when the prostate gland, which surrounds the urethra and helps regulate urinary function, grows in size and begins to cause urinary symptoms. While BPH is not cancerous, it can cause significant discomfort and inconvenience, impacting quality of life.

Symptoms of BPH

Common symptoms of BPH include:

  • Weak or interrupted urine flow
  • Urgency and frequency of urination, especially at night
  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Inability to completely empty the bladder
  • Urinary incontinence or leakage

BPH Treatment Options

The treatment options for BPH depend on the severity of symptoms and may include lifestyle changes, medications, minimally invasive procedures, or surgery. Some common BPH treatment options include:

  • Lifestyle changes: Making changes to diet and fluid intake, as well as avoiding bladder irritants, can help alleviate symptoms.
  • Medications: Alpha-blockers and 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors can help relax the muscles of the prostate and bladder neck, improving urine flow and reducing symptoms.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: Procedures such as transurethral microwave therapy (TUMT) and transurethral needle ablation (TUNA) use heat or radiofrequency energy to shrink the prostate and improve urine flow.
  • Surgery: Traditional surgical options for BPH include transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and open prostatectomy.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive BPH Treatment

Minimally invasive procedures for BPH offer several benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Shorter recovery time: Most minimally invasive procedures can be performed as outpatient procedures, allowing patients to return home the same day.
  • Reduced pain and bleeding: Minimally invasive procedures cause less trauma to the surrounding tissue, reducing pain and bleeding compared to traditional surgery.
  • Improved outcomes: Advanced technology and specialized instruments used in minimally invasive procedures allow for more precise and accurate treatment, improving outcomes and reducing the risk of long-term complications.

Choosing the Right BPH Treatment

The right BPH treatment for you will depend on your individual symptoms and medical history. An experienced urologist can help you evaluate your options and choose the treatment that is right for you. It is important to seek the care of a qualified healthcare professional as early as possible to manage your symptoms and maintain optimal urinary health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before your first appointment, one of our clinical care coordinators will call you to discuss your case and review what appointments to expect. The clinical care coordinator will make sure all appointments are arranged in a timely fashion. Each of our patients is unique and treated individually, and the schedule of doctors you see will be tailored specifically to your needs. The doctors will discuss your care options with you and answer any questions that you may have regarding your diagnosis and management.

We are dedicated to helping pregnant women and their families after a significant birth defect or genetic condition has been detected. Specialists from both obstetrics and pediatrics work together as a team to determine the best way to care for you and your unborn baby, both during and after your pregnancy.

Whenever possible, we create an integrated appointment plan, so that you can meet with the multiple subspecialists involved in your case. Some patients come here for a second opinion and go back to their obstetrician. Other patients transfer their care to Columbia as their delivery date approaches to make sure their baby immediately receives the necessary specialized pediatric care after birth.
