Minimally Invasive Treatment for Enlarged Prostate

According to the American Urological Society, by age 60, over half of all men have an enlarged prostate. And by age 85, that number climbs to 85%! Having an enlarged prostate, also known as BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), means the prostate has enlarged and is now blocking the flow of the urine through the urethra.

  • A weak or slow urinary stream
  • A feeling of incomplete bladder emptying
  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Frequent Urination

  • Getting up frequently at night to urinate
  • A urinary stream that starts and stops
  • Straining to urinate
