Enlarged Prostate and Erectile Dysfunction Are Subjects of Free Men's Health Seminar
Date:5/27/2009

TUCSON, Ariz., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Peter Burrows from the Arizona Center-Vasectomy/Urology, a specialist in men's health issues, will be leading a free Men's Health Seminar on Saturday June 6th. The program, to be held at 8:30 AM at El Dorado Hospital, will explain the latest treatment options for two of the most common conditions affecting men today: Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (also known as Enlarged Prostate) and Erectile Dysfunction. A question and answer period will follow the program.

At the June 6th presentation, Dr. Burrows will bring clarity to two topics that together affect well over half of all men above the age of 60 in the United States. Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a natural, non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. Symptoms of BPH include frequent urination, weak flow, and interrupted sleep--factors that can significantly impact a man's quality of life.

Many men are commonly offered two treatment options for BPH: prescription medication, or a surgical procedure known as Transurethral Resection of the Prostate, or TURP. Both options can be effective, yet both have potential side effects. Dr. Burrows will explain a new procedure involving a minimally invasive laser surgery, from American Medical Systems, that equals the benefits of TURP with fewer potential complications; it can also be performed on an outpatient basis.

Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is the inability to maintain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Diabetes, heart disease, prostate surgery and medications for other conditions are among the most common physical causes. The good news is that nearly every case is treatable today. Options range from lifestyle changes to medications, as well as more permanent solutions such as penile implants, from American Medical Systems.

Spouses or partners are invited to accompany attendees. The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will last approximately one hour. Refreshments will be served. Space is limited and reservations are strongly advised.

All surgical treatments have inherent and associated risks. The most common risks associated with GreenLight are hematuria, short term dysuria and urinary track infections.

Implanting a penile prosthesis is likely to damage or destroy any remaining natural ability to have an erection. This product is contraindicated for patient with the following conditions:

  • Active urinary infections or active skin infections in the region of surgery.
  • A known sensitivity to silicone or the antibiotic rifampin or tetracyclines.
  • Lupus erythematosus.
  • Taking warfarin, thionamides, isoniazid and halothane
  • Renal disease.

You should talk with your doctor about benefits and risks before moving forward with any treatment option.

To reserve a space, call 866-432-5274 toll-free. (Men's health seminar will be held at El Dorado Hospital in the ground floor cafeteria. Hospital is located at 1400 North Wilmot Rd. Tucson, AZ 85712).
