Treatment of an enlarged prostate

Vascular interventional radiology is the minimally invasive, image-guided treatment for medical conditions that once required open surgery.

By using the power of advanced imaging (ultrasound, X-rays, CAT scans, MRI scans and other innovative methods), vascular interventional radiologists can see inside your body and treat complex conditions—even cardiovascular disease and cancer—less invasively and with unprecedented precision, including the treatment of an enlarged prostate.

Prostate embolization

Do you experience frequent urination, urgency to urinate, difficulty urinating or inability to fully empty your bladder? You may have benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is diagnosed by exam and laboratory tests. We offer a minimally invasive procedure called prostatic artery embolization (PAE) which blocks the blood flow to specific areas of the prostate, shrinking the prostate gland, alleviating symptoms. This procedure is less painful and has less recovery time than surgery and does not carry the sexual side effects of invasive surgery.
