Better Stream: Robotic Simple Prostatectomy for the Treatment of BPH

Better Stream: Robotic Simple Prostatectomy for the Treatment of BPH Listen To This Episode on Apple Podcasts

In this episode we discuss robotic simple prostatectomy for men with urinary symptoms due to an enlarged prostate (BPH). In prior episodes, we have discussed several treatment options for BPH including medications and a variety of procedures. But what if the medications don’t work and the prostate is just too big to qualify for minimally invasive surgical procedures? Fortunately, robotic simple prostatectomy has emerged as a potential option for men in this situation. But, how does this procedure work? What are the risks? How long is the recovery? And how successful is it in relieving urinary symptoms of BPH for the long haul. To help us answer these questions, we are fortunate to be joined by Dr. Daniel Eun.
