Dr. Gregory J. Andros Treats 500th Patient with the UroLift® System for BPH (Enlarged Prostate)
Dr. Gregory Andros is the 11th doctor in the world to complete 500 UroLift Procedures
Gregory Andros, M.D., and Advanced Urology Associates announced today that his 500th patient has been treated with the UroLift® System. Dr. Andros is the first physician in all of the Midwest to reach this new milestone, performing more UroLift System procedures than any other doctor in the area and in the top 25 of all physicians in the country.
UroLift is a proven, minimally invasive technology to treat men suffering from symptoms associated with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH.
“The UroLift System is a breakthrough treatment that typically takes less than an hour and can offer multiple benefits for men with enlarged prostate – an alternative to invasive surgery without cutting, heating, or removing tissue,” said Dr. Andros. “In addition, the procedure involves minimal downtime, preservation of sexual function, and does not require ongoing continued medications. Hearing first-hand the experiences of more than 500 patients reaffirms that we are providing the best care possible for our patients and that this procedure is changing lives.”
Nearly 40 million men in the United States are affected by BPH. Not to be confused with prostate cancer, BPH occurs when the prostate gland that surrounds the male urethra becomes enlarged with advancing age and begins to obstruct the urinary system. Symptoms of BPH often include interrupted sleep and urinary problems, and can cause loss of productivity, depression and decreased quality of life.
Advanced Urology Associates is a Center of Excellence for BPH treatment and our board-certified urologists including Dr. Andros center all their efforts around ensuring every one of our patient’s quality of life becomes the best it can be.
