Enlarged Prostate Care

As men age, the prostate enlarges or tightens, resulting in symptoms such as difficulty urinating, frequent urination, bladder stones, recurrent urinary tract infections or blood in the urine.

Urologists at The University of Kansas Health System offer comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and management of enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) for patients at our Orthopedics and Medical Pavilion in Kansas City, Kansas.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

BPH is a commonly diagnosed condition in men. By age 50, 25% of men will experience symptoms of BPH, with half of all men developing BPH by the age of 70. BPH can significantly impact your quality of life, but urologists at The University of Kansas Health System are here to help.
