Urologist Andrew Grollman talks about Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, also known as BPH, is a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. Over 70% of men in their 60s have BPH symptoms.

While BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, it can greatly affect a man’s quality of life. Board Certified Urologist, Andrew Grollman specializes in treating men with BPH, utilizing the state of the art Uro-Lift System.

Treatment with the UroLift® System is typically a one-time, in-office solution that provides rapid relief and recovery for men living with symptoms of an enlarged prostate. It breaks the cycle of medications and how they make a person feel, all without the risks of traditional surgery. The goal of the UroLift System treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.

Most men living with enlarged prostate (BPH) symptoms take prescription medications after they’re diagnosed but these prescriptions often don’t provide adequate relief and may cause dizziness, fatigue, and sexual dysfunction. Medications don’t need to become a lifelong burden and men don’t need to wait until surgery is required to address the problem. With the UroLift System treatment, men suffering from BPH symptoms can avoid traditional surgery altogether.
