GreenLight Laser Therapy is a Treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), or Enlarged Prostate.

Advanced Urology Associates announced that Dr. Sandeep Sawhney has been designated as a Center of Excellence for GreenLight™ Laser Therapy treatment – a minimally invasive outpatient procedure for men looking to treat their benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), not just the symptoms. GreenLight Therapy can help provide immediate relief from enlarged prostate symptoms such as frequent urination—especially at night, weak urine flow, urgency and incomplete bladder emptying. In addition, GreenLight Laser Therapy requires no incisions and typically has no overall deleterious impact on sexual function.1 The Center of Excellence designation recognizes Dr. Sawhney’s high degree of experience with GreenLight Laser Therapy and commitment to delivering effective, long-lasting therapy to men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).1

BPH is a condition in which a man’s prostate enlarges and squeezes the urethra, causing frustrating symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, a weak or interrupted urine stream, and the need to get up several times a night to urinate. It affects about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85.2

GreenLight Laser Therapy uses laser energy to vaporize the enlarged tissue, creating an open channel for urine to pass through the urethra. In addition to typically experiencing immediate improvements in urine flow, many patients are pleased to know that GreenLight typically has no overall deleterious impact on sexual function.1 GreenLight Laser therapy is a long-term solution without the need for BPH medication.1

GreenLight Therapy is currently being used in many leading urology practices throughout the United States. To date, more than one million patients around the world have been successfully treated with GreenLight Therapy.4

NeoTract Designates Dr. Sandeep Sawhney as UroLift® Center of Excellence

NeoTract, a wholly owned subsidiary of Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE:TFX) focused on addressing unmet needs in the field of urology, today announced that Sandeep Sawhney, M.D., Advanced Urology Associates in Joliet, IL, has been designated as a UroLift® Center of Excellence. The designation recognizes that Dr. Sawhney has achieved a high level of training and experience with the UroLift® System and demonstrated a commitment to exemplary care for men suffering from symptoms associated with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate.

Recommended for the treatment of BPH in both the American Urological Association and European Association of Urology clinical guidelines, the FDA-cleared Prostatic Urethral Lift procedure using the UroLift System is a proven, minimally invasive technology for treating lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH. The UroLift permanent implants, delivered during a transurethral outpatient procedure, relieve prostate obstruction and open the urethra directly without cutting, heating, or removing prostate tissue.

The UroLift Center of Excellence program is designed to highlight urologists who are committed to educating their patients on BPH and the UroLift System as a treatment option and consistently seek to deliver excellent patient outcomes and experiences.

“We are proud to name Dr. Sandeep Sawhney as a UroLift Center of Excellence and provider of care for men with enlarged prostate symptoms using the UroLift System treatment,” said Dave Amerson, president of the Teleflex Interventional Urology business unit. “The UroLift System is a safe and effective treatment that allows physicians to treat men in-office under local anesthesia, so they can experience lasting symptom relief within days after receiving treatment.”

Is Your Urologist Board Certified?

Is Your Urologist Board Certified?

Here’s why you should check and select one who is.

Nine Board Certified Urologists at Advanced Urology Associates

Anyone needing a specialized surgical procedure or cutting-edge medical care will want to be treated by a physician that has the highest level of training possible, which Board Certification provides. A general practitioner, for example, won’t be as knowledgeable in urology-related patient care as a Board Certified urologist who has received additional training and stayed current with the latest medical advances, including the most up-to-date medications, surgical equipment, and surgical techniques available.

In order to become Board Certified, the physician or physician assistant must go through a rigorous application process, obtain extensive training and experience, and meet a variety of eligibility requirements. Earning Board Certification is one of the highest honors a physician can receive in a particular field of study. Over 12% of urologists in Illinois are not Board Certified.

At Advanced Urology Associates, all nine of their urologists are Board Certified. Drs. Gregory Andros, Thomas Burns, Luke Cho, Gregory Lewis, Ryan Manecke, Constance Marks, Thai Nguyen, Sandeep Sawhney, and Peter Tek have all received this special designation. Physician Assistant Ryan Lewis is also Board Certified by the NCCPA.

Dr. Peter Tek, M.S., D.O., is the most recent recipient of Board Certification. By earning this designation, AUA is now one of the largest urology practices in the state of Illinois to have 100% of its urologists and PAs Board Certified.

Dr. Peter Tek, M.S., D.O.

“Board Certification means a great deal to me,” explained Dr. Tek. “It represents the highest level of achievement in my field of urology. It is the most difficult pinnacle to reach.” To be Board Certified in a specialty requires many years of training, including graduating from medical school and completing a residency. “The surgeon must also pass written and oral Board exams administered by peers within the specialty,” he added. “The surgeon must stay current with the latest medical standards and continue to pass written exams over time to maintain certification.”

Dr. Tek grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, and received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He earned his medical degree at Midwestern University and went on to specialize in Urological Surgery at Franciscan St. James Health, where he served as Chief Resident. Dr. Tek is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Bioengineering in the Department of Medicine at UIC, where he develops cutting-edge medical devices and technologies, has earned multiple patents, publishes in national urology journals, and presents at national urology conferences. He is a member of the American Urological Association, specializing in minimally invasive urologic procedures, Endourology for the treatment of kidney stones, and male sexual health.

Unfortunately for patients, not all urology and vasectomy clinics require Board Certification. When undergoing delicate surgical procedures like vasectomies, or being treated for prostate and bladder issues, it is vital to visit a Board Certified urologist. At Advanced Urology Associates, Board Certified urologists specialize in male genital anatomy and fertility, and are leading the industry with cutting-edge procedures like the no-scalpel vasectomy. Some competitors, including NuMale and independent doctors who claim to treat Erectile Dysfunction and other men’s health issues, have doctors that aren’t Board Certified and aren’t even urologists.

Pursuing treatment with a Board Certified urologist allows patients to feel confident that they’re receiving the best and most highly advanced treatment possible. “Our patients can be assured that all the urologists at AUA practice at the highest level with the most up-to-date medical knowledge and standards,” said Dr. Tek.
