Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)?  

BPH is more commonly referred to as an enlarged prostate. Your urethra, which is the tube that carries urine from your bladder and out of your body, passes through your prostate. When your prostate enlarges, it presses on the urethra, obstructing the flow of urine.

What Are The Symptoms Of BPH?

BPH symptoms include:

  • Frequent urination (every 1 to 2 hours)
  • Decrease in the flow of urine
  • Dribbling of urine after urination
  • Feelings of incomplete bladder emptying
  • Significant urinary urgency
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Inability to void your bladder

Are There Non-Surgical BPH Treatments?

Yes. Our urologists may decide to prescripe alpha blockers or 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. Alpha blockers help relax the muscular portion of your prostate, which makes it easier to void and empty your bladder completely. For many men, use of alpha blockers decreases both urgency and the risk of urinary infections. 5-alpha reductase inhibitors are medications that block the production of the hormone that causes prostate growth. The team uses this medication to help reduce overall prostate size and allow more effective urination.

What Surgeries Treat BPH? 

There are several surgical treatments that are designed to alleviate BPH symptoms, including:

  • Button vaporization electrode
  • Laser ablation
  • UroLift
