BPH Treatment options

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

Questions Frequently Asked About BPH Treatment

Are in-office procedures, such as UroLift®, covered by insurance?

Medicare and many commercial insurance plans provide coverage. Ask your doctor’s office to assist you by providing the information your insurance plan may require.

What is my recovery like? Will I be able to recover at home?

Your urologist will give you post-treatment instructions and explain the recovery period to you. Many people choose the treatment that is best for their lifestyle. Dr. Lotenfoe will be able to explain your options, and help you make the decision. If you are determined to be a candidate for UroLift®, Dr. Lotenfoe will explain the procedure and its benefits, as well as inform you of potential risks.

What questions should I ask my doctor?

Of course, it is helpful to discuss any and all concerns with your Urologist at your appointment. Questions such as "How do I know my problem is not prostate cancer?", "What tests should I have?", "Have I tried all the different safe treatments and medicines that may help?", "Are there medicines that may make my symptoms worse?" and any other information you're missing can prepare your doctor to be as thorough as possible in explanation of the benefits of multiple treatment avenues. It is also extremely helpful for you, as the patient, to get the most out of your effort and time in seeking treatment for your BPH symptoms. 1

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.
