Relief for Symptoms of Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Urologic Specialists of New England are pleased to offer the Prolieve® System as an option for men who are experiencing urinary difficulties caused by enlarged prostate (BPH). Prolieve uses microwave energy to shrink the prostate and a balloon catheter to widen the urinary passage -- these two therapies combine to relieve the disturbing symptoms of BPH for many men. The FDA-approved procedure is performed in the urologist's office and takes about 45 minutes.

If you are taking pills for enlarged prostate but not getting as much relief as you had hoped for, Prolieve may help you. An evaluation by one of our doctors will give you the information to help decide whether to try it. Learn more about Prolieve therapy for BPH or arrange for an evaluation appointment (see below).

If you are not being treated but have one or more of the following symptoms, you should know that you may have an enlarged prostate:

  • Frequent need to go to the bathroom
  • Getting up two or more times during the night to urinate
  • Difficulty emptying your bladder completely
  • Having the urge to urinate come on suddenly
  • Needing to strain or push to start urinating
  • Having a weak urine stream

These symptoms may also be caused by other conditions, and only a medical examination can determine what your situation actually is. BPH, or prostate enlargement, is very common: more than half of men age 50 or older have it, and if you're over 80 you have an 80 percent chance of having it. Treatment options include medications, Prolieve and surgery.
