Treatments for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)


With various Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) treatments available, the best choice for you depends on various factors. These factors included your prostate size, age, overall health, and the amount of discomfort you are experiencing. If the symptoms are tolerable, trying natural treatment such as lifestyle changes may help. Some of the natural treatment includes;

  • urinating immediately you feel the need
  • going to the washroom to urinate frequently
  • Keep off using OTC medications such as antihistamines or decongestants that make bladder emptying hard.
  • Avoiding taking caffeinated or alcoholic drinks after dinner
  • Practicing Kegel exercise to strengthen the pelvic muscles
  • Regular exercises
  • Keep yourself warm; cold weather makes the symptoms worse.

Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE)


La Jolla Vein & Vascular is excited to do this new procedure for our clinic. Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is an innovative procedure that helps treat urinary symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia without sexual side effects. Although it is now common in the United States, the procedure was developed in Europe and South America. Patients who suffer from BPH encounter multiple urinary and sexual issues. Enlarged prostate makes urine flow very slow, leading to urinary infections that may affect your kidney. While various medications and surgical treatments are available for BPH, they often retrograde ejaculation, a severe sexual dysfunction. As mentioned earlier, PAE is an advanced treatment, which offers fast results without interfering with the patient’s sex life.
