Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. BPH is a very common condition that affects over 40 million Americans and over 500 million aging men worldwide. While BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, it can greatly affect a man’s quality of life. DHR Health Urology Institute offers treatment with the UroLift® System for a minimally invasive approach that provides rapid relief and recovery of BPH symptoms. For more information, watch the videos at the bottom of the page.

Low Testosterone

Low Testosterone

Low testosterone (hypogonadism) can be caused by a medical condition, stress, problems with the pituitary gland or testicles, or as the result of congenital issues, infections, or treatment such as radiation and chemotherapy. Low testosterone can lead to changes in sex drive, fatigue, loss of muscle mass, irritability, poor sleep, or infertility. We provide an extensive evaluation to determine the source of symptoms and develop a treatment plan.

Male Infertility

Male Infertility

Infertility is a common, yet complex, problem that affects many couples trying to have a baby. The inability to conceive may be caused by low or poor quality sperm production, blockages in the urinary tract, and range of conditions, illnesses, injuries, and lifestyle factors. Diagnosing male infertility can be done through an evaluation that includes detailed medical history, physical examination, and semen analysis; further tests may be conducted if needed. We offer a range of treatments for fertility issues.

Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery can be used to perform minimally invasive procedures on the urinary tract, including the kidney, bladder and ureters. This type of procedure provides surgeons with better visualization, accuracy, and flexibility during surgery. When patients undergo robotic surgery, they tend to experience less pain and faster recovery times.

Pediatric Urology

Pediatric Urology

The DHR Health Pediatric Urology Institute provides treatment, education and counseling for children and adolescents with urinary or genital tract conditions. Our team of physicians works with children and their parents to create a treatment plan that addresses their health needs, personal development and quality of life.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic Floor Therapy

DHR Health Pelvic Floor Therapy is an outpatient rehabilitation service that delivers evidence-based and outcomes-driven care, which enables the patients to have relief from pelvic floor muscular dysfunction and achieve functional goals. The Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Team is trained to develop an individualized treatment program using a variety of techniques that alleviate pelvic floor dysfunction.

Reconstructive Urology

Reconstructive Urology

Patients who have been diagnosed with cancer, incontinence, pelvic floor prolapse, a neurological disorder or experience narrowing of the urinary tract may need to undergo reconstructive urologic surgery to help restore proper function. Reconstructive urologic surgery is also beneficial for patients who suffered a traumatic injury, causing damage to their genitourinary system.

Urinary Stone Disease

Urinary Stone Disease

Deposits of minerals in the kidneys can become concentrated and solidify into stones that can block the urinary tract and cause major pain. Once a person experiences kidney stones, their likelihood for developing them in the future increases. Most smaller kidney stones can be passed without any medical intervention but larger stones may need to be removed through a minimally-invasive procedure.

UroLift

UroLift

The UroLift System uses a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra. It is the only BPH treatment performed by a urologist that does not require heating, cutting or removal of the prostate tissue. The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia in a physician’s office or ambulatory surgery center. Patients typically return home the same day without a catheter. As a UroLift Center of Excellence, DHR Health is proud to offer this service to the community.

Urologic Oncology

Urologic Oncology

We are home to the only urologic oncology program in the Rio Grande Valley, treating all cancers of the urinary tract, including bladder cancer, prostate cancer and kidney cancer. We collaborate with surgeons, radiation oncologists and additional specialists to provide patients the latest medical and surgical treatments that result in the best possible outcomes.
