Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition of the prostate in men that results in obstructive voiding symptoms. Patients may complain of frequent urination, urinary urgency, urinary dribbling, slowing stream, straining to urinate, waking up at night to urinate, incomplete bladder emptying and even inability to urinate altogether. Treatment options may include fluid management and dietary changes, medications, minimally invasive procedures, and surgery.
At West Coast Urology, we offer the latest tests and treatment options to assist you with restoring your urinary function and to improve your urinary symptoms. Depending on the outcome of your evaluation and severity of symptoms, you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive treatment for BPH.
We offer a wide array of non-surgical same day treatments for BPH, which may include microwave treatment (TUMT), Urolift®, water vapor thermotherapy (Rezūm™), photoselective vaporization of prostate with GreenLight™ laser (PVP), waterjet ablation (Aquablation®) and saline TURP. Most of the time, hospital admission is not required and you will be discharged home the same day. In severe cases, surgical robotic assisted simple prostatectomy or open surgery may be considered.
