Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
(BPH) otherwise known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or Enlargement of the Prostate is a condition that effects nearly 50% of men by the age of 50 years old and becomes clinically significant in 50% of men by the age of 80 years old. This is caused by an increase in the number of cells that make up the prostate.
Signs and symptoms involve issues in both storage and emptying of the bladder. Storage symptoms may include frequent urination, feeling a strong need to urinate while not being able to empty, the inability to hold your urine, and the frequent need to urinate during the night otherwise known as nocturia. Voiding symptoms may include substantial waiting for the stream of urine to begin, urine that intermittently starts and stops, straining to urinate, and dribbling as opposed to a steady stream of urine. These symptoms can significantly affect the lifestyle of men during the day and evening resulting in lack of sleep and frequent trips to the restroom.
Perito Urology now offers a minimally invasive, safe and effective procedure to reduce the symptoms of BPH while also preserving sexual function and ejaculation.
