According to Miami urologist and prostate cancer treatment specialist Dr. George Suarez, non-surgical treatment for enlarged prostate is going to be a reality in the days to come. Experts have been using pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
The great news for people who are suffering from BPH is that they may not be required to have surgery.
Researchers have said that tests have been conducted on dogs suffering from the problems, and the tests appear to have been very successful. Your Miami urologist Dr. Suarez is of the opinion that if they can work so effectively on dogs, this same non-invasive procedure should also succeed in the case of men who suffer from an enlarged prostate.
BPH is a common urological condition caused by the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland as men age. And there is no denying the fact that enlarged prostates is a common problem and if this non-invasive process proves successful it will help a large number of people across the world.
As the prostate enlarges, it squeezes down on the urethra, resulting in a number of issues in the lower urinary tract. These warning signs can cause men to have trouble urinating and lead to symptoms of BPH. The symptoms that accompany BPH are known as lower urinary tract symptoms. As a man gets older, his prostate may become enlarged and begin to cause urinary symptoms and other problems.
According to your best Miami urologist, researchers indicated that the method used in the investigation to treat dogs with BPH was pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF). They say that it is a non-invasive method used in orthopedics, neurology, and urology that generates both an electrical and magnetic field.
Prior studies have suggested that a reduction in the blood flow to the prostate gland and resulting inflammation are a factor in the development of BPH. And because PEMF has positive effects on similar conditions, it might also heal BPH or possibly even prevent it from developing.
