Men’s Health

Thanks to the minimally-invasive nature of Interventional Radiology, we are able to offer image-guided diagnostic and treatment solutions specific to men’s health. Interventional Radiology procedures have less risk, less pain, and less recovery time than open surgery. Our experienced team of interventional radiologists provide highly specialized care using state-of-the-art equipment to support men’s health. The applications for Interventional Radiology include routine diagnostics, as well as consultation services for male infertility, benign prostate enlargement (BPH), and arterial or vein disorders.

Common conditions include:

Varicocele Embolization

Varicoceles, or varicose veins in the scrotum, is a relatively common condition. 10% of all men have varicoceles, and among infertile couples nearly 30% of men have varicoceles. Other symptoms may include testicular atrophy (shrinkage) and aching pain when sitting or standing too long. Traditional treatment involves full anesthesia and surgical incision above the scrotum. However, interventional radiologists are able to use varicocele embolization to produce the same results with no anesthesia, no scarring, and no hospitalization.

Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE)

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) involves noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. Almost half of all men over 50 experience some symptoms associated with BPH. As the prostate enlarges, it can put pressure on the urethra, blocking or impeding the flow of urine. It can also cause bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems. The goal of Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) is to reduce the prostate’s blood supply. With reduced blood flow the enlarged prostate shrinks and symptoms improve or disappear. The noninvasive procedure is performed under conscious sedation without the need for general anesthesia.
