If you are dealing with benign prostate hyperplasia (also known as enlarged prostate) you will likely need to seek the services of a urologist.
In this St. Jude Medical Center video, meet Dr. Eric Tygenhof, a genital urinary surgeon, as he talks about his role as a urologist and gives a glimpse at the wide array of male conditions that he treats. He also talks about treatments including UroLift — a procedure he calls a “mechanical fix for a mechanical problem.” Preferring a holistic approach to medicine, Tygenhof realizes that some patients prefer a surgical solution while others are happier taking medication.
