BPH

A Large Problem
BPH affects over 500 million aging men worldwide including an estimated fifty percent (50%) of men over 50, and eighty percent (80%) of men over 80.
What is BPH? 
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA "BPH" is a non-cancerous urological disease in which the prostate enlarges and constricts the urethra which restricts normal urine flow and bladder emptying.
Pharmaceutical Therapy
For Mild to Moderate symptoms medication is often the first-line therapy. The most common medications are Proscar® and Flomax®.
Pharmaceutical Side Effects
Medications require daily doses. Side effects such as sexual dysfunction, dizziness and headaches which result in over 25% of patients discontinuing medications within 3 months.
Surgical Procedures
Most surgical approaches are delivered up the urethra to resect or ablate the urethra and prostate tissue to "open up the blocked urethra". Most common are TURP and LASER.
TURP
The current "Gold Standard" procedure delivers a resectoscope up the urethra to remove the urethra and bulk prostate tissue to create a larger pathway for urine to pass. The side effects are significant.
