A Center of Excellence
For Enlarged Prostate Treatment

Enlarged prostate is extremely common among men as they age. As the normally walnut-sized organ grows, it begins to obstruct the bladder. This causes symptoms that are at best a nuisance and at worst can lead to medical emergency. At Austin Urology Institute we have an unrivaled suite of solutions to deal with prostates of all sizes.

What Is BPH?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, can lead to numerous lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). These symptoms may include frequent urination, weaker flow, dribbling, or waking up at night to go. BPH is a common urological condition caused by the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland in aging men. The prostate is a reproductive organ that produces ejaculatory fluid. It’s typically the size of a walnut… until time takes a toll.

As the prostate enlarges, it can squeeze down on the urethra. This process, known as bladder outlet obstruction (BOO), not only causes issues with urination, but can do serious harm to the bladder if left unchecked.

More Enlarged Prostate Options Give You the Best Option

The Austin Urology Institute is a leading provider in enlarged prostate treatments. We offer more options, greater expertise, and high end facilities.


The UroLift is a permanent device preventing the prostate from blocking the urethra. It’s the only BPH treatment that doesn’t require any cutting or heating. Patients come home quicker, without a catheter, and recover faster overall.


For very large prostates, Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) is the only minimally-invasive solution that can reduce the prostate’s size while drastically cutting down recovery time and effect on sexual function. We are the first in Austin to perform the procedure, and complete over 100 HoLEPs annually.


Certain cases of enlarged prostate require a surgical solution. Trans-urethral Resection of the Prostate uses high definition cameras to visualize the prostate, and then uses plasma-vaporization or electro-currents to remove the obstructing tissue.


Using advanced delivery technologies, vapor contacts the enlarged prostate tissue and turns back into water. The stored energy is released into prostate cells, effectively destroying the tissue and creating a channel that allows urine to flow more freely.


The iTind treatment is a temporary implant that reshapes the prostatatic urethra. It does not require overnight hospitalization and there is no need for a catheter and very minimal downtime.
