Two UroCare Special Treatments For Men
UroCare is the dedicated CardioCare department focusing on urologic endovascular interventions for the male patient. We are a unique center of expertise when it comes to men's two most common urologic problems:
Treatment without surgery
There is no cut, no wound and no scar
Life expectancy is continuously growing, but even more the demand for quality of life, or extended healthspan! Men want treatment options, which will bring their life back on track, without harmful side effects.
ED – Erectile Dysfunction
BPH – Benign Prostate Hyperplasia
50% of men over age 50 already show enlargement of the prostate gland. 90% of men over age 70 show BPH and nagging symptoms.
PAE – Prostate Artery Embolization – is a revolutionary, non-surgical, minimally invasive endovascular procedure for non-cancerous prostate enlargement.
It is FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) approved in the US and CIRSE (Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe) recommended: a new state-of-the-art alternative procedure to traditional surgery.
Although a multi-factorial problem, recent research has shown a high implication of vascular disease in patients affected by ED.
75% of ED patients have a significant narrowing of one of the penis arteries.
This is good news, because vascular blockages can be easily re-opened with a minimally invasive intervention – this is our core expertise at UroCare.
