Kare Bears is excited to host another Kare Bears Presents on May 26 at 11 AM.
Please join Dr. Vi Hua in a Zoom presentation sharing information on some of the conditions that affect your golf or pickleball game while living in Pebble Creek. Most commonly, this includes Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a common condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. Over 40% of men in their 50s and over 70% of men in their 60s have BPH. While BPH is a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer, it can greatly affect a man’s quality of life. As the prostate enlarges, it presses on and blocks the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms such as: a frequent need to urinate both day and night, weak or slow urinary stream, a sense that you cannot completely empty your bladder, difficulty or delay in starting urination, a urinary stream that stops and starts. Not treating enlarged prostate can lead to permanent bladder damage. About 87% of men who elect watchful waiting experience a worsening of symptoms over a 4 year time period.
The UroLift® System is a minimally invasive procedure to treat an enlarged prostate. It is a proven option for patients looking for an alternative to medications or major surgery. It is the only leading enlarged prostate procedure that does not require heating, cutting, or destruction of prostate tissue.
Dr. Vi Hua, M.D. grew up in Dallas, Texas and completed his undergraduate education at The University of Texas at Austin. He then returned to his home town to attend The University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School to complete his Doctorate of Medicine. He completed general surgical residency followed by a residency in Urology at The Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University, one of the nation's leading tertiary academic centers. While Dr. Hua is an expert in all areas of urology, his interests include laparoscopy and minimally invasive urology. In his training, he has acquired the distinguishing skills for performing nephron-sparing laparoscopic DaVinci partial nephrectomies, laparoscopic renal cryoablation, and laparoscopic DaVinci robotic radical prostatectomies. He is a pioneer amongst his peers, offering the latest cutting-edge clinical practices and surgical techniques to the West Valley Community. He has also achieved a higher level of training and experience with the Urolift system, and he is included in the Urolift Center of Excellence program. He is Board Certified in the practice of Urology.
