Dr. Neal Khurana sat down with local news station KTIV to discuss his non-surgical treatment option for enlarged prostates, a condition that affects the majority of men over age 50. Many men avoid treatment as the thought of surgery can be frightening, as well as taking time off to heal and recover. However, with this minimally invasive treatment option, men can go home the same day and resume normal activity within a couple of days.
Prostate artery embolization is a treatment in which the interventional radiologist, Dr. Khurana, inserts a catheter into an artery in the groin or wrist and directs it to the arteries feeding the prostate. Here, Dr. Khurana can inject particles into the vessel that block the blood supply which will halt the enlargement of the prostates and help shrink them. “It’s really nice to see these patients back to their normal lives without symptoms and they did it without having surgery,” said Dr. Khurana.
