Bladder cancer is often found while investigating blood in the urine. Make sure you have a urinalysis with your yearly physical. Bladder cancer often does not have any symptoms until it is advanced. Smoking is the number one cause of bladder cancer. We provide the most up to date surgical procedures for bladder cancer with close follow up.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)/Enlarged Prostate
Benign prostatic hyperplasia is nonmalignant (noncancerous) enlargement of the prostate gland, a common occurrence in older men. It is also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia and abbreviated as BPH.
In BPH, the prostate gland grows in size. It may compress the urethra which courses through the center of the prostate. This can impede the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra to the outside. It can cause urine to back up in the bladder (retention) leading to the need to urinate frequently during the day and night. Other common symptoms include a slow flow of urine, the need to urinate urgently and difficulty starting the urinary stream. More serious problems include urinary tract infections and complete blockage of the urethra, which may be a medical emergency and can lead injury to the kidneys. BPH is not a precursor (a forerunner) to prostate cancer.
If you are noticing a weaker stream, sensation of incomplete emptying, frequent trips to the restroom at night, and increasing urinary frequency, you may be having symptoms of BPH. We manage both medical and surgical treatment for BPH including TransUrethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) and Greenlight Laser.
Kidney cancer is often found incidentally. We provide up to date surgical interventions for kidney cancer and close follow up afterwards.
Treatments for kidney cancer include laparoscopic procedures. Laparoscopic procedures reduce the size of incisions and the postoperative discomfort. They provide for faster recovery with comparative results to open procedures. Additionally, nephrecomy may be used to treat kidney cancer.
Overactive bladder is characterized by frequent trips to the restroom with small amount of urine. It is most common in middle aged women but can happen in both sexes and all age groups. We provide several options for treatment and work closely with you to improve your quality of life.
Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in men today. The recommendation is a yearly PSA and digital rectal exam of the prostate starting at age 50. If you have a family history of prostate cancer you should start at age 45 and possibly even age 40. We will be more than happy to work with you on all aspects of prostate cancer including diagnostic biopsy and prostate cancer treatment.
Treatments for prostate cancer include a Prostatectomy.
Stress incontinence is the inadvertent loss of urine with heavy lifting, laughing, coughing or sneezing. Most commonly this occurs in elderly women after vaginal childbirth. We offer several treatments for this and would be more than happy to talk with you about them.
Testicular cancer treatment has made much advancement in the last decades. We work with the medical oncologists to provide the latest and most successful therapies for testicular cancer.
