It is Possible to Treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
The treatment options for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) have come a long way. Diagnostic tools can determine the severity of symptoms and help doctors and patients make the most well-informed decisions about treatment. Treatment options for BPH range from medication to surgery and non-surgical solutions.I'm ready to see Dr. Hatchett
Dr. Hatchett specialized in two state-of-the-art, minimally invasive treatments for BPH:
1. The UroLift® System for the prostate
2. Rezūm® Water Steam Vaporization of the prostate
How does Dr. Hatchett decide which treatment option to choose?
There are two diagnostic procedures that will give him the answers he needs to select which BPH treatment option will be best for you:
- Flexible Cystoscopy
This diagnostic is designed to look down the urethra and into the bladder. This also will give Dr. Hatchett visualization of the anatomy of the prostate and the bladder.
- Transrectal Prostate Ultrasound
This is designed to measure the total volume and size of the prostate.
After performing these two diagnostic procedures, Dr. Hatchett will meet you in the Same-Day Surgery area in order to discuss which treatment option is the best for your particular prostate anatomy.
The UroLift® System
The UroLift® System is the most exciting advancement in the 21st century for BPH treatment. UroLift® is minimally-invasive procedure done in the comfort of Dr. Hatchett’s office with local anesthesia. There is no cutting, scraping, heating, or removal of tissue with the UroLift® System. Recovery is quick, some patients see immediate relief, and sexual function is not compromised with UroLift®. Today, you don’t have to worry about the side effects and risks of medication and surgery when you choose the UroLift® procedure.
For a better chance of quick recovery with UroLift®, one should have:
- A mid to smaller size prostate
- More of a muscular looking prostate
- Maybe a small middle lobe but not a patient with a huge pedunculated middle lobe that is growing up and into the bladder
- The need for a quick recovery time
The Rezūm® System
Rezūm® is a minimally-invasive technology that utilizes the thermal energy in water vapor to shrink the excess tissue of the prostate that presses on the urethra and causes a variety of urinary problems, including BPH.
A patient well suited for the Rezum System would ideally have:
- A larger prostate
- A more vascular, spongy looking prostate
- A large significant middle lobe obstruction or even one that is very pedunculated into the bladder
- Urinary retention from a large prostate where it is important to shrink its size
- A very large prostate for his age
