Exciting New Treatments for Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Men living with enlarged prostate or BPH now have even more treatments options available to them. Chesapeake Urology is committed to bringing the latest in innovation and treatment to patients and is pleased to provide access to the most advanced therapies for BPH, including UroLift and Rezūm. 

the new Rezūm system

REZUM IllustrationChesapeake Urology is one of only a few urology practices in the Mid-Atlantic region now offering the new Rezūm system for the treatment of BPH or enlarged prostate.

With Rezūm, a few drops of water turned into steam can help alleviate the symptoms of BPH. It's true!

Rezūm is a safe and effective office-based treatment that uses thermal energy in water vapor to reduce and remove obstructive tissue surrounding the prostate. The minimally invasive Rezūm procedure provides men with another treatment alternative that minimizes certain unwanted side effects sometimes experienced with medications or other more invasive procedures including erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence. The FDA approved the Rezūm System as a treatment for BPH in September 2015.

What About UroLift?

Urolift (1)UroLift is another new, minimally invasive approach to treating BPH. Utilizing permanent implants that act like “window curtain tie-backs,” UroLift lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra, relieving urinary symptoms.  The permanent implants are inserted utilizing a special delivery device and hold the lobes of the enlarged prostate open to relieve obstruction of the urethra. 

The best part? There is no cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue involved.

And, Don't Forget About Laser Therapy

Laser vaporization of the prostate (utilizing GreenLight™ Laser Therapy) is a technique that uses a special laser to heat and vaporize the prostate tissue that is obstructing part of the urethra.

Most men are good candidates for laser vaporization therapy, which is an outpatient procedure performed in one of Chesapeake Urology’s Summit Ambulatory Surgery Centers.

In this procedure, a small fiber is inserted into the urethra through a cystoscope. Laser energy is delivered through the fiber to remove the enlarged prostate tissue, restoring natural urine flow and relieving symptoms of BPH quickly.
