CEDAR RAPIDS—December 8, 2010—Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa will host a free men’s health seminar at 6:00pm on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at the Marriot Hotel - Cedar Rapids.
Dr. Steven Mindrup of Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa (PCI) Department of Urology will speak to attendees about the latest advanced treatment options for two conditions that affect many men: Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (also known as Enlarged Prostate), and Erectile Dysfunction.
Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) is a natural, non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate that affects more than half of all men over the age of 60. Today there are many effective treatment options for patients, including a laser therapy called GreenLight™ that has been successful for many patients.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to maintain an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse and it affects over 30 million men in the U.S. Diabetes, heart disease, prostate surgery and medications for other conditions are among the most common physical causes. Nearly every case is treatable today, with options ranging from lifestyle changes to medications, to more permanent solutions such as penile implants.
American Medical Systems, Inc. will co-sponsor this patient education event. To RSVP, call 1-877-433-2873.
