UroLift vs. TURP: New gold standard for BPH?
In this video, Dr. Baum compares UroLift with other BPH management strategies and also discusses his experience with the use of nitrous oxide as an effective sedative during in-office urologic procedures.
Dr. Gange: Dr. Baum has adopted in-office UroLift and incorporated the use of nitrous oxide for sedation. Most of us have experienced the mutual stress associated with patient discomfort during certain vasectomies and even occasional prostate biopsies. Dr. Baum's patients are comfortable during the UroLift procedure while the nitrous oxide has rapid washout and prompt recovery.
Dr. Hotaling: Here, Dr. Baum questions the standard dogma that transurethral resection of the prostate should be the gold-standard operation for BPH and reviews the information in support of this. He also provides a succinct review of the role of UroLift for urologists and patients, the relevant anatomic basis of the surgery, and his own experience. He also reviews the use of nitrous oxide in his practice to decrease patient pain and anxiety. This video will serve as an excellent reference for urologists looking to perform UroLift in their office.
