April 13: Causes and Treatment for Enlarged Prostate Explored at a Free Online CMHS Seminar
Some of the most common urological health issues in men include increased urinary frequency and benign prostatic hyperplasia, or an enlarged prostate gland. In the United States, half of all men have an enlarged prostate by age 60. If you have a frequent need to urinate both day and night, you may have an enlarged prostate.
Join Dr. Marc A. Beaghler from San Buenaventura Urology group for a free webinar on causes, symptoms, screening, diagnosis, and the latest treatments for an enlarged prostate. Among the treatment options he will discuss is the UroLift® System, a minimally invasive procedure that may help relieve symptoms.
Dr. Beaghler specializes in urology and is Community Memorial Hospital’s Medical Director of Robotic Surgery, as well as a former chief of staff and chief of surgery. He earned his medical degree from the Creighton University School of Medicine and completed a residency at Loma Linda University School of Medicine.
