Researchers and manufacturers have been busy developing minimally invasive technologies to treat urological disorders. The physicians at Urology Clinics of North Texas are dedicated to offering the latest in minimally invasive treatment. There is a wide range of technologies available today, ranging from fairly simple to highly sophisticated. Procedures using microwave, radio frequency energy, lasers, electrovaporization, and even hot water have surfaced as FDA approves alternative methods to the norm.
Urology Clinics of North Texas physicians use the following technologies and others:
Rezum is a transurethral need ablation procedure that utilizes water vapor to treat BPH. The procedure is done in the office and can relieve symptoms such as frequency, urgency, decreased stream and excessive nighttime urination.
The Urolift System relieves symptoms of BPH by utilizing Urolift Implants that are permanently placed in the prostate to the lift the tissue and increase the opening to the urethra.
- MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Guided Biopsy
MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Guided Biopsy allows the physician to target suspicious areas of the prostate to biopsy. The MRI of the prostate is performed and the radiologist will reviews the images, marking any suspicious lesions. While performing the ultrasound guided prostate biopsy, the physician will fuse the MR images over the ultrasound images for accurate targeting of the suspicious areas.
Urology Clinics of North Texas uses the most advanced robotic-assisted technology. This new technology provides a more precise, and less invasive surgery for prostate cancer. This typically reduces the size of the incisions needed, shortens the hospital stay and speeds patient recovery with better outcomes. Learn more...
Radiation therapy is a time proven treatment for cancer. Most tumors are more sensitive to radiation and thus can be effectively treated. Radiation can take several forms including radioactive seeds (gamma rays), proton beam, and man made X-ray treatment. Urology Clinics of North Texas has a Board-certified Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Wilson Hernandez. Learn more about Dr. Hernandez, along with frequently asked questions related to radiation treatment.
