BPH/Enlarged Prostate Treatment

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, is a common, non-cancerous condition that typically happens in older men when their prostate gland enlarges. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that produces semen, the fluid that transports sperm. It is located below the bladder and surrounding the urethra (the tube carrying urine out of the body). An enlarged prostate can squeeze the urethra and cause difficulty with urination.

Our BPH specialists provide a superior patient experience to help restore a man’s quality of life and alleviate BPH symptoms. From non-surgical, conservative measures to innovative minimally invasive surgical procedures, our urologists provide the advanced care and treatments men need.

What Causes an Enlarged Prostate?

BPH is related to the normal aging process and is influenced by changes in the body’s levels of the male hormone testosterone. In some cases, an enlarged prostate may also be genetic. More than half of men aged 50 and older and 90% of men aged 80 and older have BPH.
