EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Men living in Western Oregon who suffer from the symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate now have the option of out-patient, in-office treatment to cure the problem. biolitec, Inc. is pleased to announce that a network of doctors in Western Oregon is now offering its breakthrough LIFE(TM) (Laser Induced Flow Enhancement) laser treatment for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) that quickly and gently eliminates swollen 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," says Kelly Moran, Chief Operating Officer for biolitec. "Often men are reluctant to seek treatment, thinking the treatment options are painful and require extensive surgical procedures. However, our innovative LIFE(TM) laser treatment using our EVOLVE(R) laser 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 with a short recovery time and minimal postoperative risks. Additionally many times the treatment is 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 Moran. "We're excited that we've been able to create a network of providers to bring this groundbreaking treatment to the Western Oregon area and hope that those who suffer from BPH will take advantage of this simple but life changing procedure."
