YES, we can treat your enlarged prostate from your wrist.

That’s right, our PAE procedure or Prostate Artery Embolization can treat your enlarged prostate from your wrist.

If you have BPH or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia you know the symptoms can be both embarrassing and maddening. An enlarged prostate gland can cause frequent or urgent need to urinate, difficulty starting urination, and a weak urine stream or a stream that stops and starts. For most men, living with an enlarged prostate is beyond bothersome, the urinary symptoms often interfere with their daily living.

Unfortunately, most men ignore the issue due to fear of treatment procedures, which makes matters worse because BPH symptoms tend to gradually worsen over time. Given some of the surgical treatment options in the past it’s understandable that fear plays a major factor in any man’s decision process. Luckily, times have changed. MTVIR now offers men a better way to treat BPH.

MTVIR has a safe, painless, non-surgical treatment called Prostate Artery Embolization or PAE. The procedure is performed under light sedation, without the need for general anesthesia. Prostate Artery Embolization involves inserting a microcatheter into a tiny incision in the femoral artery in the groin or the radial artery in your wrist. Yes, the procedure can be done from the patient’s wrist!. X-ray guidance is used to allow the small catheter to be pass into the artery supplying the prostate. Small spheres are then inserted into the artery to block it, causing the abnormal tissue (BPH) to shrink, soften, and become reabsorbed into the body naturally.

The whole procedure takes 1 to 2 hours, and is done on an outpatient basis with patients going home the same day. PAE also has a very low complication rate, with zero reports of impotence or incontinence, and with no effect on sexual function. Patients typically report improvement of their symptoms within 2 to 3 weeks.

So, there is no reason for any man suffering with an enlarged prostate to put off treatment any longer. MTVIR’s Prostate Artery Embolization is safe, effective, and almost painless.
