Benign Prostate Hypertrophy (BPH)

Do You Have an Enlarged Prostate?

Urology Health Solutions specializes in treating BPH, which causes an enlarged prostate. As the prostate glands grow, the urethra, which allows urine to exit your bladder, may become pinched from the additional pressure placed on your urethra. BPH can make a normal function, like the need and ability to urinate, complicated.

By working with a qualified urologist, you can determine if the pain and symptoms you’re experiencing are caused by BPH. You may have BPH if you’re experiencing one or more of the following:

  • Pain
  • Burning
  • Weak streams
  • Dribbling
  • Leaking
  • Straining
  • Sudden urgency or other problems with urination
Symptoms of BPH can include embarrassing leaking, pain, and sudden urgency.

Symptoms vary in type and intensity. If you are concerned about the symptoms you are experiencing and are ready to learn about your available options, it’s time to talk to Urology Health Solutions in Orlando, Florida.

Diagnosed with BPH? Here are Your Options with
Urology Health Solutions

If BPH is the cause of your discomfort, Urology Health Solutions will walk you through treatment options. The right path will depend on several factors, including your level of pain and what option best suits your life and comfort level.

Common treatments of BPH that Urology Health Solutions specializes in include:

Surveillance

Many men with BPH choose to wait and monitor their BPH symptoms before choosing a treatment. Based on the severity of your BPH and your comfort level, you may take a “wait-and-see” approach. Urology Health Solutions will track your symptoms and explain what may happen if they worsen and treatment options.

Urolift

UroLift is an FDA-cleared treatment that does not require medication or surgery and does not carry the risk of causing sexual dysfunction. This minor procedure lifts the prostate, releasing pressure on the urethra. Learn More

Surgery

BPH surgeries are becoming less invasive and more effective than previous forms of surgical treatment (TUMT-microwave, TUNA, Indigo). Common surgeries for BPH include:

  • Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) - TURP is the most common BPH surgery, which uses a scope to scrape obstructing prostate tissue out of the way. This procedure has been associated with excessive bleeding and the risk of erectile dysfunction.
  • Greenlight Laser Prostatectomy (PVP) - An outpatient procedure, the Greenlight Laser Prostatectomy (PVP), uses a laser to remove obstructing tissue with little to no blood loss. PVP is not known to impact a patient’s sexual function. Urology Health Solutions’ Dr. Lotenfoe is an experienced provider of PVP. Dr. Lotenfoe is also a highly sought-after teacher of this method, as he has guided other practices in performing PVP.

    Contact us today to learn if PVP is the best treatment for you.
Medication

Medications can reduce the impact of BPH symptoms, but may not deliver long-term results. Medications available to treat your BPH symptoms include:

Alpha Blockers

  • Tamsulosin (Flomax)
  • Alfuzosin (Uroxatral)
  • Doxazosin
  • Terazosin

5-Alpha-Reductase Inhibitors

  • Finasteride (Proscar)
  • Dutasteride (Avodart)

BPH medications may be combined for effectiveness. Discuss side effects and benefits of BPH medication by scheduling an appointment with Urology Health Solutions.

The whole procedure wasn’t too painful, and recovery time was less than I expected. I couldn't be more satisfied with the results to be honest.

Staff is very professional and informative. Medical staff is sensitive and smart. Dr. Lotenfoe is excellent in his skill.

I've been with the Dr. Lotenfoe since 2012. He has helped me solve a complicated, years-old problem. Great staff and Janette, his primary tech in the Celebration office, is fantastic.

You can get a vasectomy without any incisions! It took less than an hour, and apart from some minor immediate discomfort, I felt great within a few hours. My wife and I are very happy with the results. Definitely recommend this doctor and this procedure as a permanent form of birth control.

Dr. Lotenfoe is a great urologist and a very nice person with excellent bedside manners. His staff is also outstanding. I recommend Dr. Lotenfoe for urology needs without any exception.
