Biopsy. Biopsy is a procedure that involves taking a small piece of prostate tissue for examination with a microscope. A urologist performs the biopsy in an outpatient center or a hospital. The urologist will give the patient light sedation and local anesthetic; however, in some cases, the patient will require general anesthesia. The urologist uses. Transurethral needle ablation. This procedure uses heat generated by radiofrequency energy to destroy prostate tissue. A urologist inserts a cystoscope through the urethra to the prostate. A urologist then inserts small needles through the end of the cystoscope into the prostate. The needles send radiofrequency energy that heats and. TUIP. A TUIP is a surgical procedure to widen the urethra. During a TUIP, the urologist inserts a cystoscope and an instrument that uses an electric current or a laser beam through the urethra to reach the prostate. The urologist widens the urethra by making a few small cuts in the prostate and in the bladder neck. Some urologists believe that TUIP gives the same relief as TURP except with less risk of side effects.


Will I need to see the doctor after the procedure?

 (also known as the Priapus Shot) is a procedure designed to deliver lasting improvements in sexual performance to men, especially those who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery and other conditions such as. The secret is PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is made from your own blood. As in any procedure that uses PRP, the P-Shot begins withdrawing a small amount of your own blood. We usually only need about as much blood as you would give for a simple blood test to make the injection. Then, using a specialized centrifuge, we separate stem cells and. The P-shot is a simple in-office procedure. It takes about 30 minutes, and there is little or no downtime. As far as Priapus side effects go, that is really one of the beauties of the treatment. Since it is made from your own blood, there are little or no known side.

After prostate tissue has been removed, the body needs time to heal. The remaining prostate tissue may actually swell and become inflamed before the desired shrinking effect. The UroLift procedure is performed by a urologist and can be done in an office setting or in the hospital. The urologist uses the UroLift device to lift and move the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra (the passageway that urine flows through). Tiny implants are placed to hold the tissue in. In my practice, I have found the UroLift System procedure to be a safe and simple treatment option that offers rapid symptom relief for men suffering from BPH. Unique benefits of this treatment option as documented in the Journal of Urology are that it can be done in the office setting; typically does not require an overnight stay or catheter use post-procedure; requires no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue and preserves sexual function.
Dilation and curettage (D and C) is a procedure in which the cervix of the uterus is expanded (dilated) so that the uterine lining (endometrium) can be removed with a spoon-shaped instrument called a curet or curette. The procedure is performed for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, this surgery is done in order to help determine the cause of. In general, a D and C is used to help determine the health of the uterine lining or to remove abnormal tissue. Occasionally, the procedure can correct some of the problems in the uterus such as polyps, scar tissue, or tissue. surgeon feels that enough tissue has been obtained, that the entire uterine cavity has been sampled, or that any abnormal growths that were seen on ultrasound were removed, then the procedure is stopped. Often, the doctor uses a viewing instrument to examine the uterus visually (hysteroscopy) prior to the D and C to make the procedure more complete.

What does the procedure involve?

The endoscopist will be able to look for problems such as inflammation, ulcers or polyps (small growths). They will be able to perform biopsies and take photographs to help make the diagnosis. If they find a polyp, it may be possible to remove it during the procedure. The healthcare team will tell you what was found during the procedure and discuss with you any treatment or follow-up you. Endoscopy is a medical procedure where a doctor uses a thin flexible lighted tube inserted into the body to look for and diagnose.
Overview Uses Procedure Results Risks Recovery Angiogram vs. angioplasty. This articles discusses why doctors use angiograms, how they perform them, and the risks and side effects associated with the procedure. Although rare, this procedure does carry some risk of side effects,

What are the Benefits, Risks and Side Effects of Active Surveillance?

Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) is another type of EBRT, but it uses the proton. It uses a machine called a synchrotron or cyclotron to speed up and control the protons. High-energy protons can travel deeper into body tissue than low-energy photons. With proton therapy, radiation does not go beyond the tumor, so nearby tissue is not affected. There are fewer side effects. For this procedure, the prostate is imaged and measured. Special needles called “cryoprobes” are placed in the prostate under the skin. The needles are guided by ultrasound, to direct the freezing process. A catheter will be used in the hospital until you can urinate on your own. After cryotherapy, a patient is monitored with regular PSA tests. Chemotherapy uses drugs to destroy cancer cells anywhere in the body. It is used for advanced stages of prostate cancer. It is also used when cancer has metastasized (spread) into other organs or tissue. The drugs circulate in the bloodstream. Because they kill any rapidly growing cell, they attack both cancerous cells and non-cancerous ones. Dose and frequency are carefully controlled to reduce the side effects.
Niacinamide can be made from niacin in the body. Niacin is converted to niacinamide when it is taken in amounts greater than what is needed by the body. Niacin and niacinamide are easily dissolved in water and are well-absorbed when taken by mouth. Niacin and niacinamide are required for the proper function of fats and sugars in the body and to maintain healthy cells. At high doses, niacin and niacinamide can have different effects.
