What Is An Enlarged Prostate?
The prostate is a small gland in the male reproductive system that surrounds the urethra and produces seminal fluid. An enlarged prostate, often called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), typically occurs in men as they age. If you have an enlarged prostate, it can block the urethra, resulting in uncomfortable symptoms in the urinary tract, such as incontinence, difficulty emptying your bladder, painful urination, and increased urinary frequency. Fortunately, there are many effective treatments Dr. Shenelle Wilson is able to provide for this common condition. To learn more, we encourage you to reach out to Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center in Kennesaw, GA to schedule an appointment.
How Is An Enlarged Prostate Treated?
Dr. Wilson may run a series of tests to confirm if you have an enlarged prostate. She will then create a treatment plan for you by factoring in your age, the size of your prostate, symptoms, and overall health. We offer a wide variety of both surgical and nonsurgical treatments for BPH, including:
- UroLift®: A minimally invasive, FDA-approved tiny implant is used to elevate the prostate tissue so it stops blocking the urethra and allows urine to pass through.
- Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP): A surgical procedure that involves removing the prostate tissue so the urethra is no longer blocked, enabling urine to flow through.
- Robotic Simple Prostatectomy: Using a robotic-assisted surgical technique, this procedure is a minimally invasive way to remove the part of your prostate that is blocking the passage of urine.
- Aquablation Therapy: This innovative treatment is minimally invasive and utilizes robotic technology to dispense a heat-free waterjet that removes prostate tissue without making any incisions.
Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
Dr. Wilson is amazing great wonderful doctor she will pay attention all the your concerns and words She’s care about her patients Actually all the Georgia Urology doctors are great doctors and staff members are very friendly and helpful
