HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Men in the Los Angeles area who suffer from the symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate now have the option of out-patient, in-office treatment to cure the problem. Orange Coast Urology of Huntington Beach is now offering the LIFE(TM) (Laser Induced Flow Enhancement) procedure using the EVOLVE(R) Laser System in their office. The LIFE(TM) procedure is a breakthrough laser treatment for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) that quickly and gently removes blocking prostate tissue without bleeding.
"Too many men suffer with the symptoms of frequent or difficult urination that are caused by a benign enlargement of the prostate. Every second man over 60 and nearly every man over 80 experience the problem in one form or another," says Dr. Ronald F. Gilbert of Orange Coast Urology. "Men are often reluctant to seek treatment because they think that the treatment options are painful and require extensive surgical procedures. However, the innovative LIFE(TM) (Laser Induced Flow Enhancement) laser treatment from biolitec allows us to vaporize prostate tissue that is blocking the urinary tract in a simple, in-office treatment that allows them to return home the same day as treatment with a short recovery time and minimal postoperative risks. The treatment is usually covered by insurance with an office visit co-pay."
biolitec's LIFE(TM) therapy is performed under local anaesthesia, thus avoiding the risks associated with a spinal or general anaesthesia, and can be completed in as little as 15 to 30 minutes. Patients can go home the day of the procedure and catheters, when needed, are typically removed within 48 hours.
"The advancement offered by the LIFE(TM) procedure means that men can now easily treat what is one of the most common, and frustrating, medical conditions," adds Dr. Gilbert. "We're excited to bring this groundbreaking treatment to the Huntington Beach area and hope that those who suffer from BPH will take advantage of this simple but life changing procedure."
