A common medical condition that targets older men regarding the enlargement of the prostate gland is referred to as BPH or Benign prostate hyperplasia. Symptoms include a weak or slow urinary stream, a sense that you cannot completely empty your bladder, difficulty or delay in starting urination, an urgent feeling of needing to urinate as well as a urinary stream that stops and starts. This condition affects over 70% of men in their 60s. BPH is not only treatable, but with the new UroLift procedure being offered by Dr. Steven Sukin of Texas Urology Specialists, patients are now seeing extraordinary results from this minimally invasive procedure. Treatment options for men suffering from BPH normally range from taking certain medications to more invasive methods that include surgery. Part of a patient’s prostate would typically need to be removed as part of that procedure. A new and minimally invasive option was introduced by the California-based company, NeoTract, Inc.
NeoTract, Inc. specializes in developing minimally invasive and clinically effective urological devices. What is unique about the UroLift System is that it is the only system available that does not remove part of the patient’s prostate. It also does not negatively impact a man’s sexual function. The procedure involves the insertion of tiny implants that hold the enlarged prostate tissue back and relieves the compression on the urethra. The relief then allows for normal urine flow.
This is a cutting edge treatment option that Dr. Sukin helped bring to the Houston area. Not only has Dr. Sukin pioneered the use of this revolutionary treatment in The Woodlands, Tomball and North Houston areas, he has also provided proctoring services to help train other doctors around the country in this procedure. He is designated as the Houston proctor for UroLift.
Recently, Dr. Sukin hosted urologists from Florida, Arkasas and Dallas. During their visit, Dr. Sukin explained how the UroLift procedure worked and trained each doctor on how to perform the UroLift procedure. Dr. Sukin has a great team assembled in Houston and is excited to offer this procedure to his patients. He believes in providing men with the best treatment options available and the UroLift System allows him to treat BPH with less invasive methods.
Dr. Sukin has been practicing in the field of urology for more than fourteen years. He is a leading urologist in the Tomball, The Woodlands and North Houston areas. Please contact Dr. Sukin about your BPH symptoms and allow him to discuss treatment options with you including the UroLift procedure.
