You don’t have to endure a lower quality of life due to BPH symptoms.
All patients may not need treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). But if your symptoms are inconvenient, affecting your sense of well-being and quality of life, or are a health risk, you need to know your options for relief. Dr. Kenworthy will document your history of symptoms, conduct a thorough exam, and obtain any diagnostics necessary. He can then recommend a treatment approach based on the severity and type of your symptoms, your health status, and on your personal preferences.
Types of treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia1
Treatment options for benign prostatic hyperplasia can include:
- Lifestyle Changes like reducing liquid intake before sleeping, training to increase continence, avoiding alcohol and caffeine, monitoring certain medications, and more.
- Medication Therapy for symptomatic relief and to shrink the prostate or stop additional growth
- Minimally Invasive Procedures using ultrasound, thermotherapy, stents, and radiofrequency ablation
- Surgical Procedures like transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), laser surgery, open prostatectomy, and transurethral incision of the prostate (TUIP)
While medication therapy is often the first-line of treatment for BPH, the relief it provides may be unsatisfactory or temporary. Medications can also produce undesirable side effects like dizziness, headaches and sexual dysfunction.
Surgical procedures to open a blocked urethra are usually effective to relieve symptoms, but they can also create permanent side effects such as urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction and retrograde ejaculation.
You also have an alternative that works - the Urolift® System
This minimally invasive procedure is a breakthrough technique to treat BPH. It’s an alternative to invasive surgery, is a permanent treatment, and offers you multiple benefits.
The UroLift® System takes less than an hour in Dr. Kenworthy’s office and involves no cutting, heating, or removal of tissue. You enjoy minimal downtime, preservation of sexual function, and freedom from ongoing medication therapy.
How does the UroLift System work?
The UroLift® System is a revolutionary approach to treating a prostate enlarged by BPH. Tiny implants hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way, so it no longer blocks the urethra.
Dr. Kenworthy can place the UroLift® System implants under local anesthesia in his office. Pressure is relieved, and urine can flow normally again. Typically, patients return home the same day.
Advantages of the UroLift System: 2
- Uses a permanent implant for a permanent solution
- Rapid symptom relief, better than reported for medications
- Safer risk profile, better than reported for surgical procedures like TURP
- Preservation of sexual function
- Return to normal activity in days, not months
- Improved quality of life
- No ongoing BPH medications
- Results proven by 19 clinical study publications and 5 years published clinical data
The goal of the UroLift® System treatment is to relieve your symptoms so that you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.
How do I know if the Urolift® System is right for me?
The UroLift® System is a proven, permanent treatment option for BPH patients who are looking for an alternative to medications or major surgery. The UroLift® System is appropriate for patients seeking a minimally invasive treatment and are concerned about preserving their sexual function and their quality of life.
Dr. Kenworthy was one of the 'early adopters' of the UroLift® System, performing his first procedure in early 2014. He was the first Urologist in the greater Houston area to perform the UroLift® procedure in the office and the first urologist to earn the UroLift® Center of Excellence designation in the Greater Houston area.
To date, Dr. Kenworthy has performed well over 200 UroLift® procedures in-office, more than any other doctor in the area, and has been awarded the UroLift® Center of Excellence designation. Dr. Kenworthy has stated his commitment to providing the best care for patients whose health and lives are compromised by BPH,
“Hearing first-hand the experiences of more than 100 patients reaffirms that we are providing the best care possible for our patients and that this procedure is changing lives.”
If your symptoms are affecting your health, sense of well-being and quality of life, you owe it to yourself to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Kenworthy. Based on his examination and diagnostic testing, he will be able to assess the status of your BPH and determine if the UroLift® System is the right choice for you.
Dr Kenworthy is the first physician in the Houston area to earn this exclusive award. His designation as a Center of Excellence is based on achieving a high level of training and experience with the UroLift® System, consistently delivering excellent patient outcomes with UroLift®, and providing exemplary overall care to men suffering from urinary tract symptoms.
