Laser therapy for prostate to be PriorityCare topic
Allegheny Valley Hospital's PriorityCare program is hosting a free lecture about a new treatment option for enlarged prostrate.
Dr. Rong-Chung Lin, a board-certified urologist, will present “GreenLight Laser Therapy: A New Option for Enlarged Prostate Treatment” at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 29 at the hospital in Harrison.
GreenLight Laser therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that allows rapid urine-flow improvement, quick return to normal activities and reduced complications.
When men reach their mid-50s, their chances of experiencing bothersome urinary symptoms increase. In many cases, a physician will find that an enlarged prostate, also called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH, is the cause.
Lin is on staff at the hospital.
Space is limited. Call 877-433-2873 to register.
