If you are a man living with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), Jefferson urologists offer a full complement of minimally invasive treatments, including drug therapy, transurethral microwave thermotherapy (in which microwaves are used to heat and destroy excess prostate tissue) and interstitial laser treatment (which uses a laser fiber to heat and destroy excess tissue), as well as traditional and laser surgeries.

Jefferson is a leader in the use of leading-edge, minimally invasive procedures, offering the first microwave treatments in the Delaware Valley in 1997. These advanced procedures effectively treat BPH on an outpatient basis with no general anesthesia and with little blood loss, and no risk of fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
