  • Category: Primary Care

Aquablation® delivers long-lasting relief without the permanent side effects.

For most men, the reality of aging means developing an enlarged prostate. In fact, an enlarged prostate — medically known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) — affects about half of all men between ages 51 and 60. Up to 90% of men over age 80 have BPH.

When the prostate is enlarged, it can bother or block the bladder. This can cause some men to run to the bathroom several times a night or feel they need to always be close to a restroom, affecting their quality of life.

Hear board-certified urologist Stephen Siegel, MD, of Boulder Medical Center discuss the causes, symptoms and complications of untreated BPH. He will then describe medications and surgeries for treating BPH, including Aquablation — a new minimally invasive, robotically controlled procedure that limits the irreversible side effects of traditional surgery.
