There are many faces of erectile dysfunction. You don’t have to be one of them.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects up to 50 million men in the U.S. While most men try pills as their first ED treatment, it is estimated that for 40% of cases, pills are not effective. ED is especially common in men with prostate surgery, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.

Ready to regain your confidence and reignite spontaneous moments with your partner? There are reliable, effective ED solutions available, and many are covered by insurance and prescription plans.

Advanced Urology Associates First in Will County to Offer New Enlarged Prostate Treatment

Advanced Urology Associates First in Will County to Offer New Enlarged Prostate Treatment

A new minimally invasive treatment for an enlarged prostate is an alternative to surgery, drugs and permanent implants.

Dr. Gregory Andros is the first in the Will County area to perform the iTind™ procedure for the minimally invasive treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate.

“I am excited to be able to offer a new innovated minimally invasive office based BPH procedure. The iTIND technology now enables urologist to treat BPH while addressing a bladder neck obstruction without causing sexual side effects. This is the first technology that allows for treating BPH without long term medications, puncturing or removing prostate tissue.” said Dr. Greg Andros.

BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate and one of the most common diseases in aging men. BPH affects approximately 50% of men between the ages of 51 and 60 and up to 90% of men over the age of 80. BPH symptoms include frequent urination with a sense of urgency and a weak urinary stream, which can include excessive urination at night. Suffered over time, these symptoms can have a negative impact on overall quality of life. With most men facing BPH in their lifetimes, there is a need for more minimally invasive treatment options beyond drugs and surgery.

The iTind procedure involves the temporary placement of a nitinol device that reshapes the prostatic urethra without burning or cutting out tissue, and without leaving behind a permanent implant. The device remains in place for five to seven days while the patient is at home, and clinical trials have proven that, upon removal, patients experience immediate relief of their symptoms without any effect on their sexual function.

The iTind device is indicated for men aged 50 and above. As with any medical procedure, implantation of the iTind device comes with the possibility of side effects, including pelvic discomfort, blood in urine, painful or urgent urination. In rare cases, the iTind device may cause urinary tract infection or a sudden difficulty to urinate.

For more information about this new BPH treatment option, please call Advanced Urology Associates at 815.409.4930 or request an appointment online.
